    Will my data limit on AT&T get reset once I upgrade my line to the 5S? I plan on keeping the same 5GB tethering data plan. I've used a ton of data this month, and it would be nice to get it reset back to zero, otherwise I'm definitely hitting some overages.

    Reason: Waiting 2 weeks for internet installation, and been tethering a ton off of my phone.

    Thoughts? Anyone remember how AT&T has dealt with this in the past?

    When i went from iPhone 4 to 5 it didn't reset, the phone has nothing to do with your data usage.

    Does LTE register as more data? I'm upgrading from a 4s on AT&T so I have no idea how LTE works.

    Nope, it will be the same. However since it is faster, it's easier to use more.

    Videos may stream at higher quality though, due to the increase in available speed. This will result in higher data usage.

    Seriously though, what I would give to have an unlimited plan that supported tethering.

    Well that's good because I only have a 2GB plan.
