I cautioned against establishing a service with a fake address in a tax-free US state, as this is a clear breach of the AT&T T&C. The more people who abuse the service in this way, the more the viability of the service becomes threatened for ALL Canada-based customers using it. Including those Canadians who do the right thing, who pay their US state sales tax (just like all the US based customers do), and who establish their service in the appropriate tax-paying US state that corresponds with their legitimate US address, to which they have a genuine connection.
Don't take this the wrong way, but the " establishing a service with a fake address in a tax-free US state, as this is a clear breach of the AT&T T&C" has nothing to do with a tax free state, it is using ANY state you are not a resident in. Whether lower tax, no tax, or higher tax.
I thank you for the heads up on the risk of a tax free state bringing attention to a user, BUT in ALL of our cases here in Canada, it will make ZERO difference when it comes to seeing where our calls are made.
They will not be made in any of the states we use to register, at least for most.
So, again, excellent point on not choosing tax free state in order to fly under the radar, but we are all breaking the TOS regardless of the state we choose.
