Is Tethering Data using the iPhone 12 free and allowed?

Good Citizen / Bon Citoyen

Hey guys, so I am wondering if Tethering is allowed with PM? I want to tether data every so often to my laptop from my iPhone on the $40 + 2GB bonus data plan.


Thank You!

Thanks Buddy... That sounds good!

@SahotaCC  PM allows hotspot or tethering data


3G speed in PM could go as much as 12Mbps


The one using the hotspot, please make sure it set the hotspot wifi as a metered network.  Hotspot can easily drain your data as the client in this hotspot only sees it as a "wifi" and will download like it is at home if you don't mark the network  as a "metered network"

Sounds great man thank you!

Yes, it's allowed. I'm not sure what you mean by free though because it will come out of your data in your plan.

Hi @SahotaCC ,


Yes you can it’s called Personal Hotspot under settings. Make sure Bluetooth and

Wi-Fi  are both turned on

So now we're repeating our own answers that we've already given 6 days earlier. Sigh.

That's one way of bumping up your numbers for the month. I'll have to try that new trick 🙂.   Not....

Maybe it'll get the OP to pick my solution.

Thank You,


I just wasn’t sure if it’s free right but now I know!

I meant to say like there is no additional $$ 10 cost for tethering on top of your price plan. My bad sorry for the confusion. But Thank You !
