    Yeah I understand the bit about that because laptops and other devices pretty much come standard with wifi but can anybody confirm the bit about using the USB cable and having your iphone connected to a wifi hotspot and sharing it with the laptop? Can anybody confirm that his works?I already have tethering but it would be cool to have free wifi at ATT hotspots if possible.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    this program is nice but button line the way to install this program is the worst, you have to install program on your pc then install another one on your phone then install the wimi.
    rockmyphone is worst application ever.

    You must have either 3G or edge. Preferably 3G
    MyWi does NOT work with the edge network. It is only for 3G & 3GS.

    I think i found a way to edit the code so that it would be possible for the iPhone 2G to atleast wifi tether. But I'm not yet sure.

    This works great since the recent updates! I use this so my gf can connect with her iPod Touch when we are out and about, it works well. I also used it the other day when my cable service was out at home. I was surprised to notice that the connection seemed faster on my laptop than it does on the iPhone itself!

    this program is totally awesome. i had a long trip from NJ to Florida. 18 hours.

    I shared out my 3g connection to my cousins itouch, iphon without sim, and a laptop. They were all connected IMing, and surfing, while I had Pandora running on the iphone listening to music via the liquidAUX. music sounds crystal clear cause it plays through the digital port, not the headphones. LiquidAUX™ Bluetooth® Car Kit - K33428US - Kensington It worked great. Highly recommend mywifi. Worked flawlessly for entire 18 hour drive.

    Default Wifi or only 3G
    Hi-
    I recently downloaded the app and love it. Quick question - can it use wifi rather than a 3G signal to create the network? For example, if you are in a hotel (internationally, so 3G data charges are not an option) that requires a user name and password for each device to log into the wifi network, can I log in with the iPhone and then broadcast the signal to my laptop? Thanks

    I can't get the wifi tethering to work no matter what I do. I'm probably missing a step so I'm hoping someone can give me the steps to make the wifi tethering work??? The usb works great but I'm wondering the steps or instructions

    So, can I browse the internet for an hour or so while connected/using my MyWi? How long can I be connected to my MyWi until ATT sees that I am using a lot of my data and charge me a lot of money? Has anyone browse the internet while connected to MyWi for more than an hour? Did you see any charges on your bill?

    about the only thing att will give you grief for, is downloading more than 5 GB of data a month on a consistent basis. you will be hard pressed to use that much up, just browsing the web.

    today i was on for hours tethered to my iphone. 5 hours. during this whole time i was browsing, chatting, and my local notes repository kept synching with the server copy every 10 mins. i've never received any type of warning from ATT. now my data card that i lent to a a family member, i got a warning when she downloaded a bunch of music from the internet. at 5GB they simiply shut it off till the next billing period.

    How do you register with RockApp guys? I downloaded it and it's asking for a username and password before it will let me download anything.

    Cheers

    True, but it has been noted that both MyWi and PDANet are quite a bit faster than the native Tethering option. I have not tested them side by side so cannot say for sure, buy MyWi is pretty darn fast!
