    As the title says, if you pay for tethering from At&t when you go into settings>general>usage does it break up the normal iphone data from tethering data or is it all lumped into Cellular Network Data? Also, what does it say when you dial *3282#

    Thanks

    It's all included, so if you get the 4gb tethering plan, you can either use all 4gbs on 1 device, or 2gbs and 2gbs.. etc,etc..

    I don't know about the *star code, but if you use the native tethering, it will show up in a separate field as tethering usage.

    Of course, I don't think AT&T can actually track it separately, but I think it's more there for your own accounting purposes (at least I hope, otherwise I'm going to get a surprise on my bill).

    I understand that but i am wondering what the usage looks like on the device. Does it look like this? Or is the tethering data absent

    Sorry, should have been more clear

    Carriers can track it separately if they choose to, but it requires that they specify a separate APN in the iPhone Carrier Settings file.

    It all shows under cell data it's not split up
