    You will get charged at data rates. if you have an "unlimited" plan then you should be okay. Do a search for pdanet there are a lot of threads

    PDANet acts like a pass-through. When you turn on USB debugging, it allows the software on your PC to interact with the app on the phone. In this case, it's passing 'net data through it out to the towers. It looks and acts no different on the network as if you were browsing the web on your phone or checking email, etc. etc.

    i use pdanet all the time for wired and wireless tethering. after the 2 weeks or 30 days you have to purchase it. but if you are rooted there is so many other ways to get tethering, both wired and wireless. and you can make a wifi hotspot even on a D1 with the rooted versions.

    iPhone 7+ 256gb
    Incorrect, After 30 Days you have to purchase to be able to access https: sites... But if you use it, support them by purchasing the app.
