    Is this enabled yet? I'd like to use the feature on Thursday when I get my phone

    Can you tether though without the tethering plan?

    Sweet! I got another question. I'm not too familiar with what constitutes 2GB of data. I work nights 3 days a week and I plan on using the tethering to browse the internet while at work. I would use it off an on throughout the night and just browse forums and simple webpages. I don't plan on streaming movies or downloading anything. Maybe the occasional youtube video or two. Am I going to run into overage charges or will 2gb of data be plenty?

    No considering that 3G YouTube videos are usually at most 6 mb each (I think it really depends on the length of the video) web browsing should never cause you to go over your 2gb limit.

    I have streamed audio for about 6 hours a day and maybe a week straight and I only then hit about maybe 70-80% of my 1gb data plan with Rogers.

    No, that will cost you $20 a month extra. The only way around this is to jailbreak your iPhone.
