    With the $70 unlimited data and 500 mb tether, will tether me app use the unlimited phones data? I might upgrade to this plan if it does.

    Bump because I have almost reached my data limit and might have to upgrade.

    The best time as any to try a few of them tethering apps is after you reached the limit, nothing to lose. If you get more then edge speed you know its working. Just an idea

    I am currently on a 5GB $30 T-Mobile plan ans i have no wifi right now. So I was thinking about upgrading to the $70 unlimited data phone plan and 500 mb tethering.

    Thing is since I can't find my original SIM card I don't want to upgrade and not be able to come back if tethering would somehow be separated (meaning the data is taken from the 500 mb) I don't think it should but that's why I asked.

    I originally posted in the general iPhone section but my question was moved to iOS hacks.

    My next option is to buy a MiFi device and use data that way, but tetherme works lovely and no sense in an additional device if I don't need it.

    While on the topic, will MyWi or Tetherme become a bandwidth bottleneck or will it serve packets as fast as it receive it with a fast LTE connection?

    Why would it slow it down?
    It tethers as fast as your connection is.

    Oops. I've read about a maximum bandwidth in another forum, but the context was Bluetooth tethering, not wifi.
