You can pay $20 a month
or you can just jailbreak it and do it for free, just search for an app called MyWi, Tether Me, PDAnet

I did not know that you can do that if i4 is jailbroken. wow

so. does that mean the phone will be charged for data?

Yes, that's part of the reason ATT is getting away from "unlimited" data. So you will get around the monthly fee but you'll pay out the nose in GB surfing tethered.

My "good" 3G is about 1.5mb/sec. But with a 2gb data plan your talking big $$ streaming anything..... and no there is no getting around ATT not seeing how much data you are pulling off their network.

Ok. well i just wanted to know if it would have been worth it for me to keep my unlimited plan. Which I still dont think is worth it, since the speed is not that great

New to the iPhone I have the limited 2Gb plan. If I want tethering (officially ;) ) it costs an additional $20 yet it is still 2Gb limited. 2Gb is 2Gb no matter how I get it. So why do they want me to pay extra?

I guess they assume that if I don't tether I won't use the full 2Gb but if I do then I would.

That's all I can figure......
