    What are the benefits (if any) if your carrier already allows tethering? Thanks.

    i just assumed all the carriers allowed it, since its included in ios 5

     I think some like the prepaid ones would still block it (I found that issue when travelling, bought a prepaid SIM but couldn’t tether)
