So last night I'm doing my thing, downloading some music on my PC via my phone's data connection, which I've done for well over a year now, not that I do it very often, just sometimes there are things I can do by 'tethering' on my PC that I can't do on my phone due to it's limitations (ie. cannot upload photos via the phones' browser).

You will eventually lose that feature and have to pay for it once they track you down. Unless you have an employee account then tethering and mobile hotspot is included.
