  • 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!

      This is the part I don't understand... Maybe if I had a Mac it would make sense but I don't. So if the iphone is joining the wireless network created on the Mac computer, how will it be able to find this "tether" network when the device is out of range? I guess I'm totally confused. I can understand if the wireless network was itself created on the iPhone like a hotspot then sure, other devices can connect to it and bridge to its 3G connection. But I fail to see the role a computer plays in this arrangement.

      Firefox sucks but the addons are handy

      Try Opera it's basically Safari and Firefox in one

      But you're not a CCNA major! Your instructions are moot.

      "Wow", how about I did and all I saw that it only worked on Macs, unless I missed something maybe you can be a really stand up person and tell me if you tested the tether on a windows PC... or maybe you don't know.

      Right now, no one that I know has been able to make it work on Windows.
