    Question Tethering with Tmobile on iPhone 3G
    Hey, I was wondering, I have a prepaid plan with no data plan but it still has the free tzones with limited access to specific sites. I was wondering, does it cost extra for tethering, will tmobile charge more from my account if I tether?

    If you can only access certain sites then I doubt you'll be able to tether in the first place.

    If you're on the old T-zones then don't worry about getting charged. It's only in the newer pre-paid plans where they will begin charging you.

    Well, what do u mean by old tzones... I dont have a Tzones plan (likje the 5.99 unlimited plan thingy). Its just a prepaid sim for calling and texting. With all tmobile sims, you have a network (edge) with the abiity browse 7 or so specific sites for free through your phone. Thats what Im taking about.....Is that what you meant?

    No, but with this limited access can you tether to your computer and access any site?

    I wouldn't worry about them charging you. But just in case go into your mytmobile account and see if they're counting your usage

    Just checked my account and seems like no minutes were charged for the tethering I did yesterday. I guess it works.

    Ok, but did you check your DATA usage? They wouldn't charge you minutes

    In your usage section, click on "check usage" and select your phone line. Then you will have a tab that says data
