This happened many years ago. Carriers won in court as the ToS specifically states "unlimited" for a specific device. Now if you tether that said device isn't using the data. The device that is tethered to it is using the data. This is why this has not changed.

What the FCC is looking at is the "exclusive" deals carriers have with providers. Apple and AT&T as a prime example. Has nothing to do with the Data Plans, MMS, and all that what-not.
