When the new iPad 4G was released, the AT&T variant didn't offer tethering even though the Version version did. I've just spoken to two reps that say tethering is now possible if you have the 5GB for $50 plan, but not the 3GB $30 plan. I can find nothing on their web site to confirm this, and the second rep I spoke to said its been this way for a year, which I know isn't true, so he lost credibility. Does anyone know if this is true? I would test it, but I have data left in my 3GB bucket and I would loose it if I switch. There is also some difference between Pre-paying and post paying plans. I prefer the self-serve Pre-pay plan hat I can purchase as needed from the iPad itself. So if you do have tethering with AT&T, which type of iPad plan are you using. Thanks for your assistance. Calling AT&T and getting any info on the iPad Pre-paid plans is absurdly difficult. Also, I am not interested in their new shared plans. I do have an AT&T iPhone, but with just the phone and iPad, the shared plans aren't beneficial IMO, although tethering will be possible with them.
