    Default iOS 4.2 Has iPad Tethering Option... Outside the US


    A developer in Europe has found the first indication that iPads running iOS 4.2 will be able to tether. Another user in the UK also sees the "Internet Tethering" configuration option in the Cellular Data Settings pane, but the option is still unavailable on iPads running the 4.2 beta in the US. In all likelihood, the feature will support wired tethering, rather than mobile-to-mobile "hotspot" tethering à la MyWi.

    Acording to 9to5Mac, a dev in Sweden who was running iOS 4.2 beta 2 on the 3 Sverige network noticed an "Internet Tethering" section of the APN Settings pane under Settings: Cellular Data. The section asks for the APN, username and password separate from the cellular carrier data network access credentials.

    Interestingly, though, the option doesn't appear on iPads in the US, indicating that it's region- or carrier-specific. AT&T may not be willing to add a tethering option to its relatively low-cost iPad data plans, or Apple may simply have hoped to test the feature in a lower-profile location. If so, they didn't count on the attentiveness of Swedish users, or their talkativeness.

    When asked directly back in March by Swedish DJ "Jezper S" if the WiFi iPad will support iPhone tethering, Steve Jobs responded with a flat "no." This latest news, of course, talks about tethering in the other direction, but it still seems unlikely Apple will support using the iPad's WiFi chip as a hotspot.

    So, can you use a WiFi only iPad and use tethering from the iphone? As in, the iphone is the hotspot?

    I live here in the states and when I first updated my iPad to 4.2 beta 1, I briefly saw the 'Carrier' field appear in my Settings App, right above or below 'Cellular Data', I can't remember. Either way, I was highly intrigued but nothing I did made it appear again. I guess the OS pings your location once and disables it for good once they see you're in the US.

    This makes me wonder if there is a way to dig into the code and manually enable it or spoof your location.

    Most of them on forums do. It is typical. And make note, I am an American too... There are far more idiots in this country complaining about every little thing than there are educated ones. There is no argument here.

    That is so unfair..

    You have Netflix and Hulu..
    You get songs on iTunes months before us in the UK.
    You have $0.99 TV Rentals.

    That's just a few.

    Not true, I tethered my xbox 360 with my iphone 3gs and it was def playable as long as i had a full 3g connection, only lagged out a couple of times. Never did it with a PS3 it would probably be easier since microsoft is *** as hell. Never tried it tho.

    Yeah, exactly the same thing happened to me here in Japan but on my new iPhone 4.
    I noticed the Tether option in Settings, I turned it on, plugged in my USB cable but couldn't make a connection. I played around with settings on my computer, no go. I checked back on the phone and the Tether option had disappeared.
    Now I waiting ever so impatiently for the JB.

    Oh, you mean like this?

    "When did the ipod end? The macbook? THe imac? I think you see where I am going here..."

    "You have no issues with your phone therefor nobody else can or will either. Impeccable logic there..."

    "And this is why I said I was waiting rather than paying a couple bucks for the third party app someone had released"

    I'm sure I can find more, but you get the point. I see spelling and grammatical errors in all of those sentences.

    So if spelling and grammar are a measure of intelligence, then you're an idiot.
