    Default Will i be charged to tether?

    Just out of curiosity, if i tether my iPhone 3G to my macbook, and install the tethering certificate on my iphone, will i be charged extra by AT&T?

    I mean, i know the iPhone has unlimited data through AT&T, but is AT&T just going to see this as the iPhone browsing the web, or will they be able to recognize that the iphone is tethered to a computer, and using the phone as a modem?

    I doubt it. Tethering plan is just an extra plan to milk the iPhone users.

    I'm currently tethering right now on AT&T's 3G network, and have done so since Day 1 of OS 3.0's release.

    My AT&T bill hasn't changed.

    No you won't itll use data from your data bucket. in the future they might restrict tethering by sending specific settings to your phones and enable them if you pay some sort of fee, but there are always ways around that kind of stuff.
