please explain AT&T ipad/iphone sharing/tethering

My girlfriend and I are on the same phone plan, and she is still on unlimited data, as well as gets a discount for working at BofA, and Im wondering if we can get a ipad mini attached to that unlimited data plan some how, or would it need to be tethered to her phone?

It would need to be tethered, but I don't think at&t will allow you to tether an unlimited iphone plan to an ipad. You're better off buying data right from your ipad with a prepaid plan when needed.

You can add it to her plan, but only if she drops the unlimited and switches to the mobile shared plan, which may end up being cheaper than getting a second plan for the iPad. AT&T used to have a 5 GB plan with tethering, but I don't think that's available anymore. You'd have to check with AT&T to confirm.
