    Hello! I could not see that this has been brought up so here I go.
    My dad has the Iphone and we have the sling. He has the app and it works great on the phone. Does ATT have a max data usage/mo? Is he ok to watch as much TV via sling as he wishes?
    Thanks!!!

    Doesn't the Sling app for iPhone only work on wifi? Or did they change that? Sorry if I'm mistaken, but from what I remember the Sling app for iPhone was wifi only meaning you wouldn't be using AT&T data.

    The BB Sling app works with 3G I think, but I'm not too sure what the max data is per month.

    I'm interested in this so I'll check back on this thread.

    Good question! When my dad goes to the app it just "works" so I'm not sure. If I figure it out I will post on here and let you know

    You are right btw. I had him shut off his wifi and run sling. Wouldn't work. Thank you! Any ideas when network sling for iphone will be out?

    You can always jailbreak it. There is an app that'll trick the 3g to think its wifi. However I don't know, but I'm pretty sure att's data plan is unlimited

    Not sure exactly, but my "unlimited" data for my at&t laptop card is 5 gigs a month.

    In the AT&T section, Artemis posted that the cap for tethering is 5gigs, but they read that for a data plan it is truly unlimited. Call AT&T and ask them.

    Btw, does the sling media for BB still work over 3G?

    Sling actually violates the Terms of Service that you agreed to when you signed up for the data plan. I'm not sure if you will see them offer it on the iPhone until after any exclusivity deals are through (and then it is still an if)

    Of course sling is also probably violating the Terms of Service for your broadband at the house. (Assuming you have a consumer connection and not a business connection)

    I had a cable tech come out for our home phone and he insisted on checking all our equipment and boxes. One box we have is hooked up to the Sling. He had NO idea what a Sling was and had 800 questions about it-as if I was stealing cable. I just told him it's a wireless device to boost our computer signals when watching online TV. Since he was a phone specialist and not a TV specialist he accepted that. Not that it is illegal but he was very skeptical.
