    ATT will just destroy you, that's what happens. They aim their guidance missiles in your direction.

    First you have to create an ad-hoc wireless network on your PC by setting it up on your existing wireless network connection After you create the network you have to attach to it from your iPhone then run the 3proxy socks server. I'm a Mac user so I'm doing this from memory but I'm pretty sure this is the correct process because I've done it before with a Motorola A1000 running Symbian.

    if its not working restart your iphone. and also make sure before connecting to the net you type "socks" on your mobile terminal on iphone.

    the step by step procedure is very easy to understand... pls read the first page!!!

    Agreed... the mac guide is 100% accurate, if you were not successful then you didn't read it carefully.

    Can anyone tell me how to prevent the wireless connection between the laptop and the iphone going down when the iphone goes to sleep?

    or do u have to constantly play with the iphone every 2 mins? that's kinda annoying.

  8. #68
    hmmm... not sure but mine keeps running even when the iPhone goes into sleep mode. but i still can't get it to work with either firefox or IE7...

    does it have to be a certain version of firefox? I had to manually create the key "network.proxy.remote_dns" in firefox and set it to true.

    I did get it to work with AIM though and works flawlessly with it. Can chat, send files, and open picture sessions. but i would like to get it to work with a browser too.

    could it be the windows firewall or something? but i think if it were even AIM wouldn't work... and i know the 3proxy socks server is working cuz AIM is working but not any of my browsers.

    I've tethered on my iPhone before.
    I didn't get any fines or extra charges.
    I did it for about 2 days not continusly total of prob 8 hours.
    Don't make it obvious.
    The quality is pretty shitty.
    Like dial up lol.

    I was thinking of doing the same thing.
    AT&T Right?
    Your phone won't brick no matter what sim your put in it.
    Now if its AT&T it will work automaticly.
    If it doesn't you will have to unlock which is coming soon.
    But since it's AT&T it should be good to go.
    PM me when you do it.
    Also how AT&T does your contract.
    Like if you cancel your old one?

  14. #74
    You got two options man, you can either set autolock to never in settings, or download the program insomnia from installer. insomnia will let the wifi continue to work after the phone has been locked

    iPad Wifi 3.2 jailbreakme

    well all the steps are here like other post says. Won't work with explorer so u have to get safari or firefox. Most important u need to have a wireless network adapter to make a wireless an-hoc network so it iPhone can see it and connect to it. I bought me an wireless USB network adapter and now windows gives me the option to make an-hoc network before I didn't have that option that was my proplem after that I follow the steps imode69 told me and everything works. Do want he told me and everything will work also read the first post on how to setup for mac.

    what if you were to the corporate data plan and VPN into another network, and then proxy through the phone? They could not tell what is going on there then.

    Everything in the MAC tutorial is identical to windows except for creating ad-hoc network. Heres what I did (I'm on Vista)

    to create ad-hoc:

    hit start button
    then hit "connect to"
    select "set up a network or connection"
    select "set up a wireless ad hoc (computer to computer) network"
    hit "next"
    Fill in "network name" to whatever you like I named mine "iPhone"
    on the drop down you can either choose "no authentication" or if you choose "WEP" make sure you fill in a security passcode.
    check "save network"
    hit "Next" then Hit "close
    you're all done.

    Default iphone won't pick up network
    i saw a lot of you guys say you got AIM to work. I can't get aim to work.

    truthfully, i really want digsby to work. I tried to make digsby use "specify proxy config" (and put in my iphone's ip address as the host and set port to 1080) AND i tried to let it "use default system settings" but i still have not luck either way.

    any suggestions?

    I got the lastedt version of firefox and safari to work with the 3G. Too bad it's limited to certain websites. I can't get iPhone | iPod touch forums, news, themes, apps, games, unlock, jailbreak community - to work. But eBay and other sites work.

    At&t's unlimited data plan only allows 5gb? If they get on your *** about it can't you sue them for false advirtising or something?
