My voicemail is working fine with this installed.

I downloaded the one from iphoneguide. It didn't put the tethering option back under networking like I had previous. Choose the reinstall button and powered the phone off and back on, nada Uninstalled,powered off and back on and my phone got stuck at the apple logo
I wound up having to restore it because it wouldn't go any further. Well at least I know how to restore my phone now hahah
Just got back from lunch so I guess I'll jailbreak it and try again..
If i get the settings from BenM will that then make my tether appear or should it had been there before i put any settings in. I don't remember seeing a place to in the info but oh well...I'll give it a shot and if it screws up again. I'll just wait, not like MyWi doesn't work great

Well pluck me LOL that may have been the problem
Can u send me the link for the profile stuff at BenM.at or PM
10-20-2009, 02:14 PM #146
the website is help.BenM.at – Mobileconfigs and Tethering for your iPhone | BenM.at.
I removed the help.benm.at tethering profile from my phone and the 3GS tethering patch from the ifoneguide repo so that I could try out the all in one bundle from the sinfuliphone repo. Bad idea. My phone is now stuck on the apple log and I will probably have to restore it, rejailbreak it and then try again. If it fails again, I am sticking with the ifoneguide patch, it works.

I tried the one from iguide and I got stuck at the apple logo and uninstalled it but I didnt do the BenM at thing. I'm at work and when I tried to JB it would always get stuck at the itunes screen. I finally got it JB though after trying the powerbutton/home thing about 20 times hahah. My 2nd PC at home has no problem with the JB
Guess as soon as I get Cyndia and Rock back installed I'll get venturous again LOL
I was going to try the one at sinful but to be honest I was hesitate to try it from there.
Ok I finally got JB and got the patch from ifoneguide and the BenM.at patched loaded and I'm tethered posting from my phone at this moment.
I'll have to check to see if my vmail is broken...
I still don't see a screen that will allow me to make changes to my APN and VMail. So what screen should that be under?
Well I don't have the APN functions available and my voicemail doesn't seem to work now.
I'm on carrier 5.5 if that made any difference.
Looks like I'll have to uninstall this and go back to MyWi
should I have used the mobileconfigs thing at BenM and put in the APN info myself?
I just used the preconfiged one that had me choose USA,AT&T

Lockerz member PM for inv
10-20-2009, 03:41 PM #150
now does anyone have any idea why i cant see or change my APN settings? I'm thinking about creating one on BenM and trying that to see if my vmail starts working..
10-20-2009, 04:55 PM #151
For the record, it's "IFONEGUIDE" what yer looking for.
10-20-2009, 06:03 PM #152
I guess i'm giving up and going back to MyWi
I can get the hack installed, but I don't get the celluar apn setting screen, nor does my visual voicemail works.
I can tether though.
When I had MyWi installed I could tether and voicemail worked...
Wonder if I should download the Stealth carrier file and give it a whirl before I give up
10-20-2009, 06:13 PM #153
SB's carrier file does not enable tethering on 3.1.2 permanently, the settings dissapear as soon as you enable it. For me, MiWi does the trick so I'm happy I bought it.
10-20-2009, 07:08 PM #154
The easiest way I've found to go about it if you want to tether, Is to install MyWi, enable the native bluetooth/usb tethering option, go in to your settings turn tethering on, then get rid of MyWi by SSH'ing in to your phone and deleting the MyWi app. That way you keep the hack for tethering and don't need to pay for MyWi. If you try to uninstall MyWi from Rock/Cydia, it also removes the tether hack.
10-20-2009, 07:24 PM #155
Maybe I'm wrong but if you used the trial to install the "hack" and don't get the app, you are banking on the "hack" not needing registration code within a period of time or it not expiring. And as you state, what you're enabling is usb/bluetooth tethering. I suspect the ability to enable and broadcast a wifi access point lies within the app. Can you confirm that please?

I got Mywi working after I hacked the commcenter in the iphone today. Once tethering was enabled with that hack, mywi worked great.
10-20-2009, 08:29 PM #157
I'm going back to MyWi i got the hack workng but vmail doesnt work, with MyWi it does so I'll use plus you never know know I may need to share my inet via wifi, worth the $10

Yeah I had the same results. When I tried to remove the tether hack I wound up having to reload everything, so I guess I'll get it out of the way in the morning and go back to MyWi, I had everything working with it besides $10 isn't much and like I said I doubt it'll ever happen for me but one day I may need the wifi tethering
Well I was able to uninstall the tethering hack and BenM profile this time without having to do a full restore *whew* I wasn't looking forward to reloading and having to rejail break my phone. Seems like I wasn't the only one who got stuck at the apple logo screen and had to restore.
Just loaded MyWi back up tested it and it works and so does my voice mail. When my trial is up I'll just spring for it and be done with it
