AT&T offers a pay as you go access point - 150 MB for 1 week  at $15 or 5 GB for the Month (I think) at $50.  GoPhone type thing.  I know others offer similar options.

Per wk and per mo scares me.  I need something I can store hours on, that won't expire, or require any recurring charges.

You don't buy data by the hour in the USA.  It's by the amount downloaded.  It's 150 MB for $15 and with UP TO 7 days to use - if you don't, it's forfeit.  Likewise with the monthly plan.  There are no recurring charges... once you reach the limit, data stops.  Period.

hmm  What about a hack that would allow tethering.  I'm paying for it on my phone.  I don't see why I would have to pay more to use it as a pass through.

I'm confused about tethering.  Is it illegal or not?

Tethering is not illegal.  Violating your license/service agreement is.  Unless aspects of the agreement are determined to be unenforceable.  We cannot answer that aspect.  As such, we have to assume it's ALL enforceable and we cannot instruct you on how to do something like that.

Thanks for the info.  Still looking for a solution here with regard to pay-as-you go air cards without an expiration date.

Very unlikely one exists.  Expiration may be AT BEST 12 months in the future... but I wouldn't be surprised is NONE EXIST that provide more than 30 days... MAYBE 60-90...

12 months sounds a whole lot more reasonable than one month

What's given you the idea that you can't tether? Had someone told you that you can't do it?
I'm in Australia and never heard of it breaching any terms or contracts so do ask your phone supplier about tethering

In fact, the phone companies down under promote it as part of their marketing.
Do check as it could obviously vary as leew had stated

Specific?  Tether your phone and be done with it.
