    Default Is MyWi worth it? Owners opinions please

    Hi
    I installed MyWi 6 trial because I'm looking to replace PDANet and so far I'm pretty impressed with it but I want to get an opinion from someone other than me to see if the $19.99 (£13 in my currency) to buy the tweak is worth the price on Cydia.

    Not when you have a data plan that includes tethering and your device supports being a wifi hotspot without the jailbreak & jailbreak app...

    My carrier doesn't support Personal Hotspot so I don't have tethering included in my data plan

    Back in the day when I was jailbreaking - I had MyWi - it was functional. I can't decide if it would be worth it for you to shuck out the $20... only you can do that.

    I agree. Besides, if it's something the OP will use often then it may be worth it to him, but if it'll be used sparingly, $20 a month is a tad expensive & unnecessary, in my opinion.

    It's not monthly... one time app buy... unless they've changed something since I last had a need for MyWi...

    Oh, well heck, it still might be worth it, especially if the OP "needs" the Internet access. ...

    Well I think it is useful when I'm on the road and I feel that compared to pdanet, pdanet is a bit lacking in comparison

    I used MyWi a lot on my Jailbroken iPhones and it was definitely worth it to me over what AT&T was going to charge me each month for their tethering plan.

    Nope, it hasn't changed. Still a one time charge of $19.99.

    It's worth it.... it's unlimited gigs for a one time fee of 20 bucks your carrier is charging you monthly for less

    Tethering on a carrier's plan comes from the data plan. Most of those aren't unlimited. Even with mywi, the data plan doesn't change. If you exceed your data allowance, you'll pay the extra.

    Were you on Sprint's "unlimited" data plan?

    I'm aware. Nothing in what I said suggested you couldn't. The comment I replied to suggested using mywi meant unlimited data usage. That's not true for the majority of iphone users without an unlimited data plan. I clarified for anyone that would read this and misinterpret his comments to mean mywi skirts data plans to offer unlimited data.
