    If you want official you must keep it under 2 gigs and forfit your unlimited data. OR you can jailbreak and get on of the tehering apps such as mywi or itether

    The answer to your question is no. You have two options.

    1) Abandon your unlimited plan and get the 200MB or 2GB plan. Then pay $20 for tethering.

    2) Don't go through official channels and jailbreak your iPhone. There are a few options to add tethering.

    Thanks for the responses guys, I am not giving up my unlimited data plan so I guess no tethering for me.


    Any idea when or if we will be able to get it in the future?

    0 dollars with MyWi

    As for official ways, there is none. To do it officially, you'll have to pay $20/month + $10/GB for every one after 2.

    You can also get it for free. Just like how you're getting tethering for free.

    Yeah, but its expensive. Drop down to the 2GB plan, and add tethering. $45/month right now. Then add in the extra $40/month in overage charges to make it seem unlimited. At only $85/month its a steal!

    An app like HandyLight could sneak itself into the app store again. I downloaded it and it works without jailbreaking on my unlimited data plan.

    At least he's honest. If you are already stealing the service, why not just go all the way?

    I simply don't want to Jailbreak my phone...I can live without tethering, I was just curious if they had the option available.

    I can't drop my unlimited plan because I usually go over 2gb, or am pretty close to it.

    I have a friend who doesn't like to jailbreak. Neither does his boyfriend.

    I've already used 2.1gb this month and still have 5 days left until my new billing cycle. Netflix App is killing my Data.

    if anything, all the other carriers will start to drop unlimited data, happened to us in the UK, it's a bitch, but nothing we can do!
