  • App Store App: 'PayUpSucker' Has Hidden Tethering Abilities

    Another tethering app slips past Apple's sorting tables.

    To my knowledge, this only works on Macs. If you get it to work on Windows, leave a comment.

    PayUpSucker is an app in the App Store that claims that all it does is create emails reminding people of I.O.U.'s and U.O.Me's. What sources are discovering, quickly, is that the app is actually a tethering app which is cloaked by a hidden identity as an I.O.U. reminder app. The app can currently be downloaded here in the App Store for 99 and if you want to try it, you better try it fast because once Apple figures out what it does, they will pull it, following the same demise as other tethering apps that have been caught on the App Store. One of such apps was Handy Light, which pretended to be a flashlight, however a certain combination of tapping colors would activate the tethering function that would allow you to share your 3G connection with your computer.



    Of course, like jailbreak tweaks such as MyWi 5.0, and TetherMe, this app tethering function is fully functional on iOS 5. This app works without a jailbreak, so check out this guide if you want to try it. Just remember that it is against your carrier's T.O.S. to do this, and if you get reprimanded we are not at fault *You chose to try this.*



    Begin by trying the app for yourself.
    • Step 1: tap on "IOU."
    • Step 2: type, "Its my data" without the apostrophe in the word, 'its.'
    • Step 3: notice the loading circle to the left of the screen. This means it's in tether mode.


    Next, go into your System Preferences on your Mac and click on "Network." Click on your network name and select, "Create Network." Name it something, for example, "tether."



    Next, connect your iPhone and the device that you want to tether to the tether network. For this guide, we are using an iPhone and tethering an iPad to the network. Go on your iPhone and on the network you made named tether, tap on the blue arrow at the right of it.



    Next, tap on the, "static" button and input:
    • IP address: Static
    • IP address: 10.0.0.13
    • Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0




    Next, start up your PayUpSucker app and follow the instructions on the image below:



    Next, go on the device you wan to tether to; in this case an iPad, and enter this information in the same section of the network settings that you did on the iPhone:




    Now you're all set. Good luck with your tethering! Don't get caught. Like most tethering apps, the more you use it the more likely you will get burned. If this worked for you, leave a comment below!

      So in a real world situation, how will this be beneficial? Say I have an iPad 2 wifi and and an iPhone configured and working as per the instructions shown... How will this benefit me when I'm away from my computer? Will it allow the iPad to tether to the iPhone's 3G connection for connectivity?

      Now it works great. Just follow the second instructions closely. My MacAir and iPhone will be perfect for this. Get it while it's still there.

      It's for tethering to iPads and MacBooks

      Our carriers here in the US don't like us tethering

      Has anyone actually tested this to see if it's not a scam?
      Do you have to be Jailbroken on the 4s for this to work

      It's Mac only. I emailed the creator from his website yesterday to ask, and he told me he didn't know how to make it work from a PC. But I'm hoping that someone here can figure it out.

      Thank you for confirming only on a mac as I'm running on Windows. I hope there is an update to work on win. I hope on updates even if removed from the app store the people who bought it will still get the updates, not sure how that works.

      Many thanks.

      You don't need a cable you are creating a WIRELESS connection(WIFI) that the iPhone joins and since the iPhone has 3G it downloads the information in 3G and pushes it to the iPad or Mac in WIFI mode while staying connected to the Internet in 3G

      Hm, this gives me pause.
      Am I the only one that's creeped out that we could be caught by AT&T by using this?
      I doubt it disguises itself as you're viewing it on your phone like PDANet.

      I bought it, but I'm wary to try.
      Guess I could have just used NetShare since I still have the .ipa.
      Probably the same.
      Sorry to babble.
