Thread: MyWi on AT&T iPhone 4

  1. #1
    Default MyWi on AT&T iPhone 4
    Moved into a new house recently, so no internet here for a little while. I installed MyWi last night, and have been using the WiFi hotspot. Pretty impressive app I must say. I'm currently using the 3 day trial app.

    Anyways, I have a few questions. I have a 2GB data plan with at&t

    I monitored my data usage very closely since using MyWi, but am a bit confused. When I ask for a data report from AT&T (by dialing *DATA#) they say I've only used around 191 MB this month.

    But at the TOP of the the MyWi app it shows my download usage as 966MB.

    Can anybody explain the difference in numbers?

    Thanks in advance!

    at&t's billing system lags on reporting data usage. That's why it shows less than what was actually used.

    To be on the safe side, I'd use what MyWi says + what Settings-->General-->Usage says and add them together. That'll give you the best idea on your true usage thus far.

    Avoid using tethering on that 2GB, as tethering tends to eat data a lot quicker than just phone usage alone.
