Depends on your plan, but since there are no data packages currently available as add ons you would likely have to change your plan to one of the new ones.

As a starting point to make a recommendation what plan do you have and what's your usage like?

Thank you. I have the Can Talk and Text Unlmt Min $50.00 plan. I would like to know how expensive it will be to add data so that I can tether with my macbook. I would mostly be checking emails and doing online research, downloading some pdfs. I don't need to watch movies or anything like that.

We'll need more details, please.

What's your current Plan?
Are you on a Monthly Plan or use Prepaid?
If you're planning to travel to the US, you can add a US Add-on with Data.

Thanks for your replies. I currently have the Can Talk and Text Unlimited Min $50. I don't know whether it includes any data or not, but I think not. Also, don't know whether I can use wi-fi or not. I would like to know what options I have re. adding data so that I can tether to my laptop. Thanks. I'm completely new to this stuff.

Oh, and I think I am a monthly plan person, but I don't really know the difference b/w that and "prepaid". I pay a monthly bill and am paying off the cost of the phone each month, in installments. I will not require a US add-on.
