    - Ability to enable USB and Bluetooth Tethering on your iPhone as well
    - Broadcasts the Network Name (SSID) - no need to fuss with creating an adhoc network on your laptop
    - Uses less battery and much faster then PdaNet due to native routing
    - Shows up and down bandwith usage


    NOTE: MyWi does not support the iPhone 2G. Please see your carrier contract for eligibility and/or additional fees.
    I played around with this all afternoon, and it seems to work great. A nice addition to this app is that you don't have to have tethering enabled from a custom ipcc either, you can enable tethering from MyWi. I had three laptops connected to my phone earlier this afternoon and they all were able to cruise the net quite nicely. MyWi sells for $9.99 and is a great application to have on your iPhone. There is a free 10 day trial available also


    cash edit: you can get it via rockyourphone



    Enjoy!

      hes not exactly trying to be a jerk. if you read it carefully and understand it....hes not flaming on the app itself. hes talking about apple and att (mostly). hes trying to say that the iphone can already handle tethering....and be made as a wifi hotspot without having other devs create a program for it....IF ATT ALLOWS IT AND APPLE ENABLES IT
      Yeh but if Apple enabled and created everything there would be no app store.

      To me it sounded like he thought the app was about tethering when in fact it creates a wifi hotspot that enables many devices (PSP's, PDA's Mobile phones games consoles etc..) not just computers to connect to the internet and it enables you to connect more than one device at a time.

      P.S I'll apologies anyway as I was a bit harsh, just having one of them days SORRY

      Sorry for the rant people but some folk just really p*** me of.
      OMG! JailbreaKilla (aka iPhoneKilla) was banned recently. Looks like he made a new account and is at it again. What a loser. He needs to get a life. He loves to get reactions like ours. Strange thing is he is very helpful in the T-Mobile forums. Just dont respond and he will go away. Maybe. Hopefully.

      All: If MyWi disconnects after a minute - please reboot your iPhone. This will fix the issue.

      This app is amazing! To have a portable wifi hotspot is sweet. Lets say you have a friend that needs his 3G unlocked and have no internet around... tethering does you no good b/c the locked phone can't access the internet. This gives you that option!

      I'm having some trouble getting this to work. I created the Wifi hotspot, and when I click the drop down menu for airport on my macbook, it shows the iphone hotspot, but it's in a different menu then the other wifi from my house. It lists it under Devices instead. And when I click on it, the airport icon goes from being the normal wifi bars to some solid icon with a little icon inside.

      Correct me if I am wrong , but if you use this app and tether your computer to download files via 3g, and AT&T can see that you are downloading more than a normal iphone should , would they then start charging you for tethering ?

      just a guess but i think that's because it creates an ad-hoc network (computer to computer) as it's not actually a base station.

      Nobody is answering the question about extra charges. This is how it works (on AT&T), it's using your current data plan. You will not receive any extra charges but if you use it a ton, especially if you go over the 3gb cap, AT&T will catch on and you might be in trouble. For light browsing/downloading you'll be fine and not incur any problems/charges.

      A tethering plan for the iphone doesn't exist yet so you'll most likely be fine for now. If you use your tether to download gigs of data you'll probably get red flagged. Use common sense and just use it when you have to to surf the web but not do any heavy downloading.

      Why bother with the desktop software when you can do everythng from the phone?

      I have now, but didn't want to clutter my iPhone with a needless app if possible. Once Rockyourphone apps have been installed, can you delete the installer?

      Anybody else having issues staying connected? I'm on ATT and not sure if it's something that's happening at their end. I make a connection and get to the internet however I then quickly lose the connection. I have rebooted my phone as was suggested by en earlier post. Thoughts?

      You need to install RockApp in Cydia and install it from there. Just search rockapp in the search bar.
