Does anyone know if this is true or not? I heard a guy talking about mobile devices and he said if you have a cell phone contract with a data plan you can add a tablet to it and wont have to add another data plan.

I was considering getting a 3G ipad if that was true, but I don't think it is. Cell phone service providers would probably make you get another plan for the ipad so they make more money off of you.

I may be wrong though, just asking.

That all depends on where you live and who your carrier is. Why not just ask them for the definitive answer?


Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).

Hi Guys,
maybe the guy you were talking with meant tethering over an wifi hotspot from the phone. this works with android and apple iphones. so if you don't mind getting your phones battery used up faster, you can save the money for a 3g ipad and just tether via wifi

He still may have to pay for a tethering plan. It all depends on his carrier.

if you have Cydia installed, there's an app for tethering free, I don't know if it is legal in your region, but how could they find out? you're then just using the ipad as a remote for the phone

Cheers,

They CAN find out. AT&T has been sending notices to people tethering that way.
