A). Unofficially, You do not need to add a tethering data plan for use with freeTether. It should use the same data connection your Pre uses. On the other hand, if you use MHS on a Pre 2, you would require a tethering plan. There is a technical explanation for the difference, but I won't go into it here.

With freeTether, tethering utilizes the same data connection as your Pre 2. If you are not on a grandfathered unlimited data plan, you should keep tabs on your usage. As long as you don't go hog wild with tethering usage, you should be ok. You might need the 2GB plan if you don't have it already.
