    Hello,

    I upgraded to the latest 3.1 firmware and noticed there is a new section in Usage that shows Tethering Data. I do not use my phone to tether data, but sometimes when viewing the usage it'll say 1.0KB Recevied, nothing ever for Sent, always 0 bytes. Is this something I should be worried about? I read on Apple Support to turn off Internet Tethering, go to General > Network > Internet Tethering, but there is no such option. Is this something I will be charged for? the 1.0KB?

    It's a known bug. Don't worry, you won't get charges Tethering data.

    Hey jav,

    Thanks for your response and the information. So I assume that there is no way to turn this option off then?

    Just go to Settings => General => Network and check if your Internet tethering option is there. I assume it is not.

    Nope, there is no Tethering option there. What does that mean?
