Have iPhone, need iPad data plan also?

I already have an iPhone 4S with its own data plan.  If I buy a new iPad, does it need its own/separate data plan?  Or does it get included in my current plan?

If you want to use the iPad on AT&T's network, it needs its own plan. Data plans are not shared between devices.

What you can do if you are not on an unlimited data plan with your iPhone is to add the tethering option to your iPhone plan than connect via wifi to your iPhone. I think it is $15/month on top of your current data plan

I believe tethering is $20 a month more than the non-tethering plan.

No, to add tethering to your iPhone, you loose your unlimited data as you need to go to a plan such as the 3GB data plan.
