    Do you have an unlimited data plan?

    If you have say the 2gig plan, you're going to get charged for going over you 2gigs as you normally would. If you go over that is.

    If you have an unlimited plan, tethering isn't technically allowed on your plan without paying extra.

    That said, I've never gotten an extra charge from AT&T for tethering, but they could decide to charge me at any time an there wouldn't be much I could do about it..

    I used 13gigs in august and they haven't said a word about it

    i think it's more of a disclaimer (CYA) just in case something goes wrong but i have never heard or read of anything like this happening

    and, BigB_117, holy sh!t! 13gigs in august?! i came close to 7gb one month and was freaking out, but like you, it was never an issue

    I don't have an internet connection at my house right now, so I use it to get on facebook, surf the web, etc. at home.

    I've also been known to download a few movies, programs,

    I don't recall why I used to much in august, I must have downloaded some big stuff..

    If I had an internet connection at home I probably wouldn't use it much at all, but for things like vacations, travel, etc. I imagine it would come in handy.

    I haven't tried it on the iphone 4 yet, but on my 3G it was about like a slower DSL connection.. The upload speed was pretty weak though..

    I'm told the iphone 4 is a bit faster..

    I put MyWi 4.0 on my iphone 4 about a week ago. It's MUCH faster than it was on my 3G. I'm not sure that's from the better 3G connection on the phone, the phone itself being faster, or MyWi 4.0 being improved over the old one.. but I'm happy with it.

    Here are the results from a speedtest I just ran. The upload comes back about twice as fast as my 3G did, and the download is about 4 times as fast
