    I have a prepay phone, a Galaxy Exibit II. When I got it about one year ago I asked about tethering. They said 'yes'. Now I have an ipad, and want to tether, as I have no Internet. Now TMobile says prepay phones don't tether!! Is there a way around this? I am so disgusted with TMobile!!

    Never heard of a pre pay phone from any source being able to tether.

    Mine does. I have a prepaid plan with my carrier and it includes unlimited free tethering, free FaceTime over cellular, unlimited texting, as well as unlimited data. All I need to do when WiFi isn't available for my iPad is to tether to my phone.

    They probably did allow tethering when you asked a year ago, but that doesn't mean they won't change terms and offerings. When it comes to carriers, the only offerings that matter are the current ones, unless you're grandfathered. That would apply to all carriers.
