    Default Cellular Network Data vs. Tether Data

    I did a restore/set up as new to my iPhone 5 this morning. I just noticed this and am not sure what it was like prior but I am seeing under settings>usage>cellular usage no data sent or received however under tether data I see values for sent and received.

    What gives? This seems strange to me as I am not tethering anywhere. I am on Verizon. Anyone with a clue on this? Doesn't seem right.

    Mine does it too. I don't have a tethering plan and have never tethered on this phone. Going to be keeping an eye on my bill

    Default Cellular Network Data vs. Tether Data

    Mine as well. The amount varies wildly. I also am curious about why phone has a few days of usage when it was supposed to be new!Click image for larger version.

    Default Cellular Network Data vs. Tether Data

    I should add that I'm not worried about the tether data since it doesn't show up on my Sprint account.

    Mine doesn't even have a tether data category, and I pay for the mobile hotspot. Weird...

    I'm seeing the same thing. I have an iPhone 5 and I'm sprint without a tethering plan. I'm thinking its iOS 6 bug.
