MEdia Net packages are not intended for tethering. Cingular reserves
the right to remove customers from MEdia Net packages for the use of
a wireless device as an interface to other devices or networks, as
determined by Cingular, including but not limited to device
tethering.

Actually it does matter, because Cingular can't make a significant change to
the terms without letting you out of your subscriber agreement without
penalty.

It may be possible to have that clause set aside by a court.
