Since 500MB is as much as I'm likely to need when I'm away from Wi Fi seems like a reasonable deal.
Check the small print as most mob contracts exclude tethering
Well I specifically asked for an upgrade to include tethering
Is this the contract on your phone?
If it's a phone you can tether to (what type is it?), then tethering your tablet to it should be fine.
As said above, many contracts (particularly unlimited data ones) don't allow tethering, and they could disconnect you for it, but if you've already checked this you should be OK.
I've tethered my Nexus 7 to my Nexus 4 in the past, worked a treat.
Forgive the slight tangent..
Anyone ever worked out a way to tether to a Kindle?
Kindle allow free 3g coverage worldwide to download books/use wikipedia etc.
using a Kindle as the tether? I doubt a Kindle has the hardware to act as a wifi base station. Add to cost and size and be against their best interests.
Just thinking out loud, but thanks for the reply. I'll have a google.
How disappointing, myP! I thought you were going to tell us all that you had discovered the joys of shibari...:)
Thanks, I shall have a look.
Everything I've read so far fluctuates between Amazon will turn a blind eye to small amounts of data and Stealing Is Bad, Amazon will brick your kindle and bill you for data.
