    on my unlocked iphone 3g, i have a terrible netowrk plan (wel good for me for everyday use), but it does not have enough megabytes for tethering with a pc/laptop. I have a friend with lg neon and a unlimited internet broswing package for 1$. lets say i plug his sim inot my phone, will i be able to use his internet while tethered? Will my comapgnie detect its no longer a neon but a iphone
    :eek:

    as long as you have the tethering option available in network settings then it would work. Generally, all you need to tether is an unlimited or high use data plan.

    o2 in the UK charge an extra £15 for that privilege

    but is there a difference between the 1$ unlimited regular phone broswsing and iphone 30$$ data? is it just to rip people with smartphones off?

    There's quite a big difference. Unlimited phone browsing carried a low fair use policy and generally, lower UMTS speeds. The iPhone tethering gives more data to use (typically 3GB) and full HSDPA speeds, if available.
