Thread: Tethering iPad to iPhone
08-10-2011, 05:35 PM #1Tethering iPad to iPhone
I know a few months back I read about tethering iPad to iPhone, but apple detected you and upgraded your data plan automatically. Has there been any workarounds for this? Or will I be stuck paying more to apple?

Apple doesn't gets paid , only your Carrier gets paid. Don't think there is any workaround. Unfortunately, this is happening in the states, in Asia, you can tether all you want, except for example : if you have a 6 gig subscription, when it reaches the max for the month, you can still tether but the speed slows down.

On topic, I have been using PDAnet for a while and haven't had any warnings, I am on Verizon though and they only recently started changing contracts.

I have MyWi on my iPad, and have tethered to my MB on a few occasions now and have yet to receive any texts/emails/letters letting me know that AT&T is privy to my doing so, nor have my bills been any different.
@jawwwsh I see what you are saying, but the founders and perhaps a few mods are the ones who set the rules, and we are all expected to follow them if we want to continue to be able to post here. The subject of tethering, at least in my opinion, is that of morals and ethics rather than legality. Whereas the area of emus and ROMs does cross into copyright infringement territory. I understand that you were not asking for help specifically for ROMs, but rules are rules.
Back on topic: I have heard that PDAnet works differently, and those that I have talked to that use it have had no issues with their carriers. Also, aren't those that are in the top 5% or so for bandwidth hogs the ones being targeted here?

+1 I use MyWi on my iPhone and connect on my iPad 2 to use 3G never heard anything or saw anything on my bill and I'm still one of the lucky ones with unlimited data on AT&T. But I dont go crazy.

I use Tetherme and also haven't heard anything from ATT. I think the people receiving warnings and changes to their contract are tethering to their laptops and not iPads.

I just recieved this email today. They said I went over 4gbs of usage but according to my data trend usage on the AT&T website I haven't gone over 2.2gbs in the past 5 months.
Called them, this was my first notice...not being charged, but they guys said...after me playing dumb..."if you are or are not, stop it, they will charge you and you will lose your unlimited plan..."
So I guess no more MyWi tethering in the future.
Not really sure how to contact the people at MyWi about this issue. I'm sure I won't be the only one getting this.

developers have already stated, using mywi is very obvious to the carrier. They can see what tunnel the data is flowing through (if you know what I mean). I use it but only in an emergency, I won't use my mywi to tether and download 2 gigs over 3G.

I got the warning from AT&T using MyWi. Changed to PDAnet and haven't heard anything since. But I'm not using it for mass use. Just for my iPad and sometimes a laptop. I rarely go over 2GB.

A friend of mine got a letter from at&t about the same thing, he has never tethered but he streams tv over 3g a lot. Its not just about tethering its about using large amou ta of data
