    Tethering has been a hesitant move with all carriers, and Apple.

    Apple wanted it. The carriers weren't sure if they could support the demand for it. Even now with Rogers here in PEI, you can only get 3G in town really. That's where you'd have regular high-speed, right! So why tether then? The people in town would only have 500MB Data Plan.

    So what does Rogers do? They block tethering to 500MB Data Plan customers. They require 1GB Data Plan to internet tether, those would be the few customers outta town without high-speed or find it better to just use the iPhone.

    Even then, Rogers says they can limit how much you tether in the end...

    When networks improve their service and signal, that's when tethering should be given.

    Ok, this might seem like a dumb question but I've never really worked with tethering before. We have 2 iPhone 3GS's and a have recently purchased an iPad WiFi. It appears as though when we tether the iPad to the iPhone AT&T charges xtra for that ability. Is there a way around this? How do they know HOW we're using the data? We're currently on the unlimited data plan for our iPhones.

    Thanks for any help, never had any experience with tethering.

    The unlimited data plan is actually 5gb. If you use MyWi they have no clue what the data is. If you use the ATT versin when released you pay an extra $20. MyWi with iPhone 3gs and iPad wifi works great.
