Hello!

 

You are in luck!  It is possible to use your iphone like a wireless modem.  The only thing is that you must have a data plan with FIDO that is 1 gigabyte or more.  Then to enable tethering you would go through the following menu's:

 

Settings> General> Network> Internet Tethering> Enable> VIA USB.

 

Hope this helps Smiley

I strongly advise you read the rest of the posts in this forum before deciding to go ahead with that plan, Cyril - there is a wealth of information available here that you would be wise to review before making any more contractural decisions.

How much extra is tethering..it used to be included in your data plan but I have noticed a new section on the bill for teathering...I would assume that scince it is the exact same ervice ..that there would be no additional charges..other then data overages

Hello qwertyuio,

 

Tethering is free to use.

 

However, a data option of 1 GB or more is needed to have access to it.

 

I hope that this answers your request.

Hey everyone!

 

I know this is pretty old but I thought I would provide some updated information about tethering in case anyone came across this in the future. :smileyhappy:

 

For all plans released on or after August 3rd, 2011, which bill data overusage at a flat rate per increment of a specific amount of data that you go over your allotted usage(for example, $5/100 MB or $10/GB. The overusage rate is dependent on which plan you are subscribed to), tethering is enabled regardless of how much data you have included in your plan. There is no longer any minimum data allotment required in order to be able to tether with your plan.

 

Hope this helps!
