    iPhone Tethering plan: how does the 2GB "allowance" work?
    I just signed up AT&T 5GB data plan, with includes Wifi tethering. One thing I am confused about is the "2GB allowance" for tethering. I know that the second highest tier is 3GB, which does not include tethering. So, my question is, when they talk about "2GB allowance", does this mean I am only allowed to "tether" 2GB worth of data (and thus once I've used 2GB via tethering, I won't be able to tether any data again until the next month, although I will still be able to use the rest of the 3GB on the iPhone, or, if I wanted, could I tether all 5GB worth my available data if I never use any data on the iPhone alone?

    Thanks for any help,
    James

    Specs:
    4GB Mac Mini 2012, 13" MBA, 15" MacBook Pro OSX 10.7, 32 GB iPhone 3GS, iPad2 64gb 3G
    I'll have to look into this, as I have the 5GB Tethering Plan and am not aware of any 2GB allowance.

    EDIT: I could not find any reference to a 2GB allowance. As far as I know, the 5GB can be divided between iPhone, iPad or any other tethered device however you wish.
    I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .

    Bump does anyone have any idea? If my question is not clear, here it is paraphrased:

    With the AT&T 5GB Data Pro plan, and I only allowed to use 2GB of the 5GB for tethering, or could I use more if wanted?

    Thanks for any help

    EDIT: I posted before reading Razormac's edit, thank you Razormac I believe you are right.
