Personal Hotspot Data/Bandwidth Usage
Got the iPhone 4 and iPad 2 Wifi. Got Wifi only because I have Personal Hotspot active on my iPhone 4 with a sufficient 1.5GB monthly bandwidth from my carrier.
Now, I downloaded this free Utility app called called DropCopy which allows you to wirelessly transfer (via local WiFi) Files between/among iOS and OSX devices.
So I flipped Hotspot on and was able to wirelessly transfer a photo taken with my iPhone 4 (the same one providing the WiFi signal) to my iPad 2!! (Glad I didn't buy the camera kit).
**Now to my question. Does using my iPhone 4 Hotspot for local WiFi file transfers bite in my monthly bandwidth allocation?**
Hope you guys get I mean. I always thought that local WiFi usage such as AirPlay, Home Sharing etc only used my home WiFi signal as a link and not my actual Internet connection and cap provided by my ISP. Am I right?
Thanks for the help provided.
