Tethering, Who Has Used It?
Well, I can vouch for the I have group. I currently am at the moment and thus had made me think of asking this question. I am on Rogers in Canada and I am very glad I have the 6GB and for the rest of the year tethering is included. The speed is not to shabby, its alright, no slug, but not a speed demon either. Anyway who has used it and what are your experiences with it?

before I could get my WiFi setup at my new house I used it on my computer for an hour or so (I've used Wifi tethering over jailbreak before though)...
My reception is pretty bad in my house but it was a good speed though. On Rogers in Newmarket, ON.

Ive used it, although just surfing the web it used 884MB this month Only using it for a total of maybe 4-5 hours, nothing heavy surfing not downloading anything
I used 668 last month and they didnt charge me anything more. I have unlimited, previous phone only months have been like 316MB-345MB so it definitely uses more bandwidth..

Something interesting to note - two weeks ago, I was still on my 3G. I had enabled the at.benm hack to tether on AT&T.
I synced my 3G to iTunes to backup the night before I upgraded to the 3G[s].
I upgrade to the 3G[s], come home, restore my profile from the 3G backup, and tethering was ALREADY installed and operational on my 3G[s], WITHOUT installing the profile on my 3G[s]!!!
I thought it was a nice little bonus. Somethig similar happened with my wife's phone. She was on a jailbroken 2.2.1 OS, and had the alphanumeric battery percentage meter turned on. Then 3.0 came out, and she did a standard restore to the new OS 3.0, but the battery percentage was still working, on a NON-JAILBROKEN 3G. It's STILL not been re-jailbroken since she upgraded to 3.0, but the percentage indicator works flawlessly.
