Tethering WiFi Connection Shows Data Usage

Symptoms

  • Receiving data usage notification while sharing WiFi connection
  • Cell antenna disabled (Airplane Mode)
  • Republic Wireless app shows data usage as tethering 

Environment

Resolution

We do not support Wi-Fi tethering on 1.0 and 2.0 phones. Doing so will result in your Wi-Fi tethering usage beings counted against your cellular data limit (on the Refund plans, this will also result in a smaller data refund).

Additional Notes

This does not affect Republic Wireless 3.0 phones which can share a WiFi connection to other devices
