    MTS’s iphone plans demolish Rogers’ and telus’ iphone plans being the only carrier to offer unlimited data on these phones. Also, included with all iphone plans is tethering. Rogers will be losing a heck of a lot of buisness.

    Pretty sure that SaskTel also offers unlimited plans and tethering. And isn’t getting these from Bell, that’s why it took so long, they had to ask Apple directly.

    Can someone tell me what tethering is? I’m getting an iphone4 on Tuesday and am not sure what plan to get.

    tethering is basically using your phone as a modem ie attaching it to your computer when wifi is not available.
