Windows Phone Hot Spot Tethering Questions

Not yet having the update on my nnbranded 800... I just had some questions about data usage and drop out.

1. I know that when the WP7 sleeps it drops Wi-Fi to save battery. Is that still the case if you are tethering?

2. If you plug your phone into Zune, does it use the computers internet or still connect over 3g?

1. The Intenet Sharing still works when the screen turns off. I've used it for an hour or more like that.

2. The phone still connects via 3G when connected to the PC.

Thank you very much for your help.

I am sure that if you put Air plane mode on you can still use IE when connected to Zune.... maybe there is a work around there?

Whenever Nokia roll out the update for the unbranded L800 I will try it.
