    So with this does it use your data that is included with the iphone plan? They won't bill you more for the laptop connect?

    Have been wanting to do this forever, but AT&T told me it would be extra.

    Anyone know?

    No they don't bill you extra; just don't use more than 5GB of bandwidth a month; if you do they will flag your account and send you letter. I've been doing it for years, switching my SIM card into a data card; recently I got a data connect plan because you can't get calls on the data card...

    Also for the data card normally the sellings are isp.cingular, ISP@...; don't use those; they are bit faster, but they are reserved for data connect customers.
