    T-Mobile (USA) does not differentiate between tethering data and regular iPhone data. As long as you have unlimited data, you can tether just fine through the iPhone natively--no MyWi required.

    honestly its porobly just me being a dumb *** and not using the right word. I basically want to set my iphone up as a wireless router to let my laptop connect to so i can have free internet.

    If you have data on your phone all you have to do is set up MyWi.

    Yup. You would need to pick up the wireless network or use the usb.

    Okay, that makes things easier.

    You don't get free data. It's that simple. Using data when you're not on a data plan is very expensive, it's $2/MiB if I'm not mistaken.

    There is some app that will allow you to get free internet through their proxy browser for something like $2 or $3 /year (forgot what it was called, but it's pretty much the same thing as going to ifailhard.com). But you won't be able to tether that. Honestly, tethering with t-mobile is pointless, unless you are out on the road somewhere and just need to use your laptop for internet because Edge is really slow. You're much better off just paying something like $10 or $15 /month to AT&T for their bottom of the line dsl service, because even that is more than 3 times faster than Edge.
