    This is probably due to most people while at home will be using there computer/laptop to surf instead of the Atrix. Now with the laptop dock its a different story, you'll most likely use more data while out or traveling and is probably there justification for requiring a tethering plan

    LOL, glad everyone is getting a kick out me asking them on FB. I'm exchanging emails with their PR staff on this issue, and will have an update when they get back to me with some more details.

    ask a more specific question, if you want to run the full firefox and use their 4g connection... will that require a tethering plan. i believe it will.

    I have pestered them incessantly about my issues with the Atrix. Posting videos of the Hitler reacts video, tweeting them about it, commenting on their FB page, and yes, even flagging and reporting all of their posts concerning the Atrix as Spam to facebook.

    I am. I'm working with a guy right now, though I think he's on the East Coast and gone for the weekend. But trust me, I'm all over this issue, and working diligently with very specific questions.

    Webtop is webtop , firefox is firefox and data is data how can AT&T tell the difference in the docs?

    I've had this question even before all of this pricing crap. There's got to be some sort of hardware ID that the Atrix picks up on so it knows that kind of dock its in. That's the only thing i can think of.

    Now, all we need is some company to build a netbook dock that tricks the Atrix into thinking its in a multimedia dock! :cool:

    Did anyone ever find out if the multimedia dock will require a tethering plan?
  10. I read on AT&T website it does if you use "AT&T Mobile Broadband". So if your just using Wifi i dont think you need it...
