Used 1.5 GB's in 5 days using MyWi. AT&T just sends a overage charge data alert
Hey all. I've been tethering my phone for about 5 days and ran up data for 1.5 GB's in those 5 days until my comcast cable issue got resolved. But anyway at&t sent me a text when i reached 65% and than when i reached 90% on my data plan. I have the 2GB data plan for $25. But whats even more suprising is each 1GB of data used over your plan is only a $10 charge. I'm paying $12.50 for each GB of data on my plan but when I go over that data I'm only paying $10 for every GB over that, lol.
Also been tethering off and on for 2 years now and never got a tethering charge from my carrier. Just don't go extreme with it. There seems to be alot of false rumors that when you tether your carrier bills the crap out of you.
So at&t wants to charge me $45 for the basic tethering plan. Or can pay an extra $10 per 1GB over my current 2GB data plan. I'll choose what I've been doing.
FYI - PDAnet,TetherMe,MyWi all work on ios5 gm
