    lol, check this out!!!!

    I just checked the settings on my iPhone 5 because my battery life had been abysmal so I did a "reset all settings" and I stumbled across this!!!!!

    Just to confirm, I checked on Sprint's website, and I haven't used a single kilobyte of tethering data

    btw, my cellular data stats are so low because I am on wifi at home and at school so.....

    EDIT: Heres the video for all of you idiots who didn't believe my pictures! http://s1183.photobucket.com/albums/x473/JGW310/iPhone 5/?action=view&current=IMG_0036.mp4

    Whoa, that's crazy. It's interesting to see that Sprint keeps track of tethering usage. I've been officially tethering my AT&T phone and it doesn't show that section under Cellular Usage.

    How about we all just agree that he faked the photo? A mediocre fake at that.

    EDIT: I took his image and made an edit of my own to show how easy the process is.

    Faked. There is no space after the 131 and before the TB. And TB wouldn't be rounded, it would display a decimal, which it doesn't.

    +1 Can't believe so many people fell for this.

    You are really an idiot. If I have nothing better to do other than make a "mediocre fake" of my phone saying I used a crazy amount of data, then I should really just go jump off of a bridge. Just because your phone isn't having this issue and just because it doesn't look how it should and you expect it to look, doesn't mean I faked it. Idiot.

    Yeah, I just got off the phone with AppleCare just to make sure and he said it's nbd if I want I can do a reset but thats a waste of my time

    lol I assume you didn't ever read the OP or you did and just suck at reading comprehension......how about we just agree that it's a glitch that other Sprint users are having.

    As far as I know there is no number that is so big that it doesn't exist. I'm just saying.
