  • Easily Enable Tethering on 3.0 via iPhone Safari!
    So if you haven't already discovered tethering is working on iPhone firmware 3.0 (even for AT&T). You can enable AT&T tethering via a simple .ipcc (download AT&T.ipcc) update via iTunes OR you can make it happen in an even easier manner via Safari on your iPhone!

    BenM.at is hosting TONS of iPhone tethering configuration files for many many networks across various countries.

    Simply browse to help.BenM.at/help.php via Safari on your iPhone



    Select Mobileconfigs



    Select Country



    Select Provider



    Select install



    Select Install Now



    Select Done



    That's it, Now just browse to Settings->General->Network->Internet Tethering->On and you have tethering.



    Note: at the time of this writing tethering is still working for AT&T even though they said it would not work. Here's hoping that AT&T doesn't prevent this overnight!

    thx to iClarified for pointing out BenM.at

      thanks for the sympathy. i actually have used one for browsing the internet on my travels but your sympathy is richly deserved for making my eyes look at that awful screen and OS.

      I thought it was a Zx spectrum, but remembered that was in the 17th century.

      Anyone have any idea how AT&T and the like plan on tracking tethered internet tracking once its "officially" released?

      I already had tethering on my jailbroken 2.2.1 iPhone 3g via pdaNet and as long as I used for small thing like checking the email or surfing the web and not for downloading large files I was able to remain under the radar and use it freely.

      I would like to use the built-in tethering capabilities instead of a 3rd party app but at the same time I dont have any desire to pay AT&T any more money than I already do. Especially for a service that should already be included...

      So the question is how will tethered vs. untethered internet traffic be determined?

      I can confirm that is working and that it was very easy and quick. I would be more excited if the MMS was working, but I'm sure that will be fixed soon.

      On a diff. note, and please correct me if I'm wrong, this "hack" reminds me of the old days of jailbreak on the go on your iPhones using safari. Can that be possible again? Just a question!

      Later,

      Why dont you show other windows users how to get it working. We would really appreciate it. Its not as simple as plugging it in.

      Same for me. I put the proxy into the MMS Proxy section in my settings, but it doesn't work. Let me know if you figure out how to fix this.

      I dont get why all windows users who have this working are neglecting to tell me how to get this working.

      Does anyone even take the time to read a thread before asking a question?

      -- Tethering does not work on 2G.

      -- Tethering may not work with all providers.

      -- No one knows if you will see an additional charge on your bill for this tethering hack.

      -- This thread has nothing to do with MMS.
      (But to clarify, AT&T is working on the MMS thing, there is no hack to make it work, they simply do not support it on our phones yet)

      -- This thread has nothing to do with jailbreaking.
      (DevTeam is working on it, there will be announcements made when it is available)

      Next time, read the thread before flooding it with questions that have already been answered.

      think you need a iphone specific driver to use this on xp using USB. BT might be a better bet.

      mac users would not tell me either, i just had to go google mad.
      try different settings in your network thingy.

      i was tethered but could not load pages, just went to my network settings and tried a few options.
      it was an ethernet setting eventually, i have no idea why.

      why would anyone alter their iphone to make use of this feature and NOT KNOW how to make it work. it seems strangely odd to me that someone would browse to an unknown web site, alter the carrier authorized settings and then come onto the forums and ask "how do i make it work"

      Download worked great. Havn't actually tried it because I'm worried about charges one interesting thing though.

      It creates a 'profile' in your General > Network > Profile > USA Profile(or something like that)

      I got paranoid. So i went to General > Reset > Reset Network Settings

      It did its thing, and when it came back. I still had the Tether Off/On switch, but no Profile.

      Essentially enabling tethering without adding a APN.
