They do watch it and some people have got there service terminated.... but they were using it a ton.

   If your just gonna use the hot spot for email, normal browsing and a you tube video here and there, you will be fine. If you plan on using the hot spot as your primary internet at your house and plan on downloading tons of stuff and watching videos all day, then you will get caught and they will cancel your service.

Been doing it for almost a year now my wife takes online classes and we watch netflix every night and they have never said a word. They gotta be sharing with lots of other people and maybe they have away of knowing that. Idk but we do it everyday and it our only internet con. ?

its not a full ban on internet, they ( I assume) cap your activity per day or the month,  im trying to figure out how well we are actually monitored

Probably very well. I'm sure they have their ways of sneaking stuiff in. CarrierIQ comes to mind. Of course they say they aren't monitoring us but I like to be more realistic about it

There is  one that works called 'WiFi Tether for Root Users' but I had a bad experience with it. It tethered with one tap (well 2 actually, one to open the app and one to tether) BUT... everytime I used it, and after I un-tethered, I'd get an error on wifi and have to reboot to use wifi again. Just a heads up

yes they can monitor your usage, but if your not going crazy with the data usage you will be fine. Just dont go downloading everything, and watching you tube videos all day. You can do both of them, just take it easy.

It says right on the box "by purchasing and opening this package or by purchasing a straight talk phone, you AGREE to the terms and conditions of service enclosed (and available at straighttalk.com)which among other things, specifically prohibit tampering with, unlocking, reflashing or altering the software or hardware in the phone, ... Tracphone will prosecute violators to the full extent of the law. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THESE TERMS, DO NOT PURCHASE THIS PHONE OR RETURN IT UNOPENED TO THE PLACE OF PURCHASE, PURSUANT TO THE RETAILERS RETURN POLICY." And the also on the front fold out at the bottom it says in read letters, "TETHERING TO ANOTHER DEVICE IS PROHIBITED. OTHER LIMITATIONS APPLY." They do offer you unlimited data to YOUR PHONE... not your entire household. Considering how most other carriers are getting rid of anything resembling a unlimited data plan straight talk is really the only thing close.

Its nice to have the feature for an emergency when I'm away from home or I can't find a wifi connection, but tethering is why companies like verizon (who charge around double for their service) have removed the option for unlimited data because their customers basically had their entire households running off their phones data plan...  it bogged down the entire network.
I guess its human nature to try and take a mile when given a inch and ruin it for everyone else.

maybe but unlimited should mean just that. so yea i push the envelope and they give you a you tube app how do they know how much your gonna use it. i might wanna watch you tube all day and all night[i dont never use it but]if i did and wanted too i should have unlimited data cause thats what they say we have. anyway they all lie just to get our money.
