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.
I know that, I have been tethering for years on razr's and blackberries.

yes they are look at the exclusive deals, but also other aspects of how wireless companies operate. that includes data usage and what is or is not considered broadband internet (wireless internet), coverage areas and so on.

so..the cost of using a cell phone , ANY cell phone, may go up to use it for tethering.

to the OP, even a jail broken iphone with heavier than what is considered normal, or unlimited (there is a cap..trust me) data usage will be looked at and you will be contacted.
