Thread: MiWi question
04-19-2011, 10:26 AM #1
Hi I was at home browsing the net on my pc than I realized that it was connected to my iphone thru MiWi, the phone itself was on my home wifi network, does that use my phone data plan or not?
Thanks in advance!

Try turning your phone's data off but keep it connected to wifi and see if your computer still works when connected to your mywi phone connection.

I believe it still uses your data.

The newest MyWi allows you to stream your WiFi wirelessly which it will stream automatically if you turn MyWi on when connected to WiFi. You can force it to use 3G but by default it streams whatever you're currently connected to. The older versions would turn your WiFi connection off if you tried to connect when your iPhone was already of WiFi.

Ok I did what I anne suggested and it does work, so I'm almost sure that it doesn't use my data as kraziebone mentioned it uses the wifi that I connected to!
I think the speed is good cause I never got that kind of speed on my 3g, that's why I never realized that it was on my iphone
