    Someone needs to learn to read the fine print in a contract.

    I'm a helpful jerk, fear me.

    You shouldn't be able to advertise something to lure people in and then make a complete contradiction in the fine print. Although I don't think that is right, I really am not complaining too loud because I just took a look at data charges for Australia. Has anyone took a look at oversea's data usage prices for the iPhone 3g? In some of these places you're paying 179$ a month for a single gigabyte. I'll take the "unlimited" plan anyday

    Hey there --

    I love that we have this ability.. but, I've got this set up exactly as suggested by all here.. and it just will not connect.

    I have winpwned my iPhone 3g -- great

    Installed 3 proxy and mobile terminal from cydia

    restarted the iphone.

    created an ad hoc computer to computer network and connected to it on my puter..

    open and no encryption

    I've gone to terminal and typed in socks and hit return

    I've connected teh iphone to the new network.. made note of the ip addy

    gone to network settings in firefox.. entered the ip in the socks host line port 1080

    left the other proxy lines empty and the port 0

    I've gone to about:config

    changed the third line down to true

    opened a web page on the iphone to make sure it's connected to 3g

    then tried to open a page in fire fox.. and nothing.. says the proxy isn't accepting the connection or something to that extent.

    I never get the globe in the tray between the monitors for the connection.. but, don't know if I should.

    Can anyone see a problem in my config? I'd love to get this going..

    thanks

    j

    I wasn't upset or ranting, happy noodle boy, I was just asking because they do advirtise and unlimited data plan that really isn't unlimited. But I guess you they can do that, sorry if it seemed like a rant or something

    It's all right, but in this world, there's no such thing as unlimited : \

    On a compeltely related sidenote, I posted this in Chit Chat because it no longer is available in the US, but you can now buy NetShare on the AppStore, which is an official tethering app from NullRiver.

    It was available in the US for like an hour and then they took it down. It seems you can still buy it elsewhere, though.

    Edit: Ha I wrote this just as you posted:

    Apparently there was an app out there called NETSHARE that made tethering so much easier by doing it for you. Somehow it made it's way to the Appstore but has been taken off.

    I wonder if anyone was able to get there hands on this before it was pulled?

    For those of you that can't get this to work!

    Under your proxy settings in firefox, select SOCKS v4.

    This goes for windows users too. This worked for me.

    I have a copy of netshare if anyone wants a copy just pm me.
    Also what kind of speeds are you guys getting?

    Yes it works.

    probably a stupid question, will it work, or is there a way to set it up WITHOUT a wireless connection. Well without any connection really. Using an old laptop without an adapter in a place without Internet connection. Just trying to use firefox on the laptop. Any help is appreciated

    An wifi connection must be made between the phone and the computer requiring the laptop to have a wireless card. Best bet would be to pick up a USB wireless card.

    I got the "Netshare" app, i installed, and did all the configurations it asked for. I even did the "about:config" for Firefox... Yet when I try to connect it shows like 2kb of data and doesn't do anything, it only worked one time for me, and after that it quit. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  16. #95
    okay.. well.. I've tried all suggestions. socks 4 and 5.. I'm definitely connected.. but, never get my puter to see the internet connection. I get a socks proxy is not accepting connections through firefox as the error message.

    I'm hoping to get netshare.. and I'll try that. Wonder if there are just some phones that won't do it.

    I am using Netshare, and I am connected too, but it only worked once for me, and now it's just sitting there, nothing will load.

  18. #97
    hehe.. tried it with foxyproxy and just doesn't do it.. they connect.. but, the internet connection just doesn't work.

    oh well. .must be somethign with this particular phone.
