    Default So does AT&T charge for tethering yet?
    I'm going on a little camping trip with my girlfriend this weekend and while there is cell reception there is no wifi...Just curious if, since AT&T doesn't officially support tethering, if you've got it enabled through the 5.0 IPCC file will you get charged for it or will it be included in the monthly data plan?

    If they do charge for it, what about the wireless tethering app available through Cydia? Does that count as "tethering" or is it just included in the data plan?

    If they notice the large amount of data your pushing through the phone then yes they can/will charge you. The iphone doesnt support it in any way yet.

    Lol, "Im going camping - there's no wifi"

    Stay away from downloading huge files (torrents) and you should be ok

    I wouldn't be downloading anything, I'd just be looking to surf the web...if this is the case you don't think AT&T will get suspicious and charge me extra?
