How 'unlimited' is my iPhone Internet?

Hi guys. I don't have a landline or the Internet so I've been using 'mywi' to tether my iPhone to my pc and access the internet that way. I don't download very much but I do use skype, YouTube and browse a fair bit. Basically I don't wanna trigger any 'fair usage' clause, so does anyone know whether this is likely? In on o2 btw.

You'd better check that your contract allows tethering as part of your unlimited because i know mine doesnt
If you're on O2 then tethering isn't free. They charge extra for it. Tethering can be tracked and it's grounds for contract termination and excess fees apparently.
tethering isnt free on any network.... thats on iphones only though......
get any mid range nokia n enjoy tethering.....
btw o2 has fair usage of 500 mb if u r on £25 to £35 pm tarrifs and 750 mb on $40 n over tarrifs,,,

Jailbreak and tether.
Damn. I've used my phone today to download iTunes etc after reformatting my computer - will they deffinately pick up on this and charge me?

I guess I will have to get a dongle or something then (only living here a few months so can't take out any contracts. Any suggestions?
Jailbreak and tether.

It is jailbroken, that's how I am using 'mywi'. Does this change anything?

Alright, thank you. I take it skype is out too?
I'd imagine your contarct has a fair use policy of 500mb. Most do now. Downloading itunes will have used over 200mb I think.

Streaming any video such as youtube uses a lot of data. Just browsing the web occassionaly will be fine but I wouldn't use it too much more this month. Not sure about skype as I don't use it.

Thanks. I'll stay clear of downloading and video watching in that case. If anyone could advise on skype's usage I'll be most grateful, I'm really keen to use it since my girlfriend is living in hong kong for the next 10 months!

Can you not just use skype on your phone? :)
