I thought the $36 fee was for people who are not yet eligible for full discount.

That would be strange if so... because I bought the ip4 when it first came out (which would mean i was valid for the discount)

I think the $36 fee applies to everyone no? It will show up on your cell bill, not on your total for the phone.

I hardly use 700mb and I use it a lot for maps and safari.
I don't use anywhere close to 5 gigs a month but I think that has a lot to do with what I have come to expect from AT&T's joke network. Most times I'll try to stream a podcast/video, wait for 10 seconds, and give up. AT&T just can't stream anything unless you have 5 bars and are outside of a major metro area.

I have AT&T and any type of download is usually pretty quick for me.

I've wondered the same thing. You have to try to chew through 5gb+ in a month. It doesn't just happen.

will i be able to tether with the 5 on my at&t plan? do i need to activate anything special or just connect to my phone. this would be very useful for me, so i won't need internet service at my house.
Well technically you're supposed to tell ATT so they can charge you for tethering, but I've been tethering for 4 years thanks to jailbreaking and my unlimited data plan.
