    Originally my iPhone 5 just monitored cellular data and my tethering usage under one heading. (Settings>general>usage>cellular usage)
    After an update to IOS6 it separated cellular usage and tethering usage. Ok no big deal, I can still track my usage with a little addition.

    NOW after the latest update, it only displays my current cellular data usage and tethering usage has simply disappeared. It would also appear that the tether usage this month I used was not combined together with cellular. Implying that it is not keeping track of it anymore.

    Is this Apples doing or my carrier?
    Can I get it back?

    One day is not long to wait for a response to a specific situation.

    It is against the rules to bump your own thread. Proceed at your own peril.

    I'm having the same issue. After updating I realized that under settings>general>usage>cellular usage "Tether Data" is no longer listed. The difference between what's listed here as my usage and what my actual usage is... well.. it's absolutely absurd. showing 1.1gb used on my phone, however my provider shows that I have used 4gb. That's a huge difference. Someone must know what's up with this? Thankful I have a 6gb plan.

    Are you using the built in Hotspot or a jailbreak tethering app?

    See if your provider has a usage app. Most do.

    I'm with Virgin Mobile (Canada). There is no carrier app for the iPhone, which I might add is not jailbroken.

    There seems to be a third party app. Virgin usage checker and it's free http://mobilemate.me

    I use Fido's usage app, Rogers has one too. Odd virgin didn't bother.

    That app is only for Australian data usage according to the website. I'm also wondering why Virgin didn't bother. I sure hope someone comes up with something for this issue.
