I have a IPhone with the grandfathered unlimited plan for $30 a month. I am waiting for the IPhone 5 (hopefully) to be released and I am thinking about getting a IPad.
If I wanted to tether the IPad to the IPhone do you absolutely have to buy the special plan for $45 dollars? It's stupid, I would only save $5 doing this as opposed to it's own 3g plan.
It seems to me like the tethering capability should be handled on the local end, on the hardware, what does ATT have to do with me tethering something to my phone? Is there a way to allow the IPad to connect to my IPhone without getting the special, over priced plan from ATT?
Does Verizon offer a better deal for tethering or are there any other creative ways to do this without paying more for a plan?
