    honestly I would like the use of tethering for my iphone 3gs so that I can us 3g on the ipad instead of buying the ridiculous 3g model ipad. the radio for the iphone is so much cheaper than the one for the ipad. Not sure what the reason is for charging people 130 dollars more...

    Officially not a chance in hell, but it would be simple with MyWi since your iPhone just appears as a Wifi hotspot, then connect your iPad to the WiFi. Done. :-)

    Unless you live in an area with 7.2mbps HSPDA then the 3GS and 3G are the same, and there isn't many places that are.

    As for tethering cable vs bluetooth, it really depends if ur getting full whack download speeds, which 98% of the time you wont, and in that case the bandwidth won't exceed bluetooths (2mbps i think off the top of my head) so therefore usb and bluetooth would be the same.

    Personally i always tether via cable just cos it drains ur battery and usb will keep it charged.

    I just upgraded to 3.1.2 from 3.0.x , jailbroke and tethering using BenM mobileconfig file. Somehow, now I seem to lose service every so often , specially while being tethered , and will regain service after several seconds. The phone just started doing this after I upgraded to 3.1.2. Does anybody else have this problem?

    I jailbroke using pwnage tool, unlocked using blacksn0w, and using BenM's config file, and I'm on AT&T.
    What other methods are you guys using to jailbrake/tether and not having problems? If I can, I'm thinking of reverting to 3.0.

    Use MyWi or PDAnet from Cydia

    I bought MyWi while I was still on 3.0 when the tethering hack worked because I liked having the WiFi hotspot option, and once 3.1 was released, I still have the license for MyWi, which still gives me tethering. No need for any other hacks. MyWi works great!

    Unless, of course, you live in a civilised country. Not sure about Europe, but here in the UK we have 7.2 on most networks now.

    I'm in the UK too so i know that 7.2mbps is on our networks, but we are the lucky ones. My point was aimed at our not so lucky neighbours across the pond. Also, realistically, you never get 7.2 download speeds. I have both a 3G and 3GS and have done the tethering tests, and very rarely did i see an incress on the 3GS, sometimes yes, not often though. The realism is, that although advertised, like our broadbands, they are "up to" speeds and are hardly ever actually achieved. Of course you can't dispute that the 3GS has a faster modem, its all theory don't you know!

    I am having this same exact issue, except I jailbroke and unlocked with blackra1n/blacksn0w. If I had to guess, I'd say it was the blacksn0w unlock, but I don't have any solid evidence that's the case.

    Also, I installed SinfuliPhone's Enable Tethering for 3GS package to get the tethering working again. Could have had something to do with it. I get random baseband resets while using data at all, around once a day, but when I'm tethering it's rampant.

    If you upgraded to 3.12 using pwnage why did you then unlock using BlackSn0w rather than UltraSn0w?

    More links on MMi:
    Tethering 3GS - 3.1.2
    Tethering 3G - 3.1.2
    This is the route I had chosen but my voicemail has never worked since. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    I am on 3.1.2 in the UK on o2 contract. I would like to tether, but last time I did the benm settings update it caused me to lose signal every few seconds. (I am not sure if I updated itunes in that time) I was new to JB'ing. A restore sorted this.

    I want to tether again, but everyone is recommending different ones like pdanet and mywi. I quite like the native app for tethering. Has anyone tried this new one (news header) on o2 yet?

    also on the benm site, it has 2 settings for o2 contract customers. Which one to choose? I dont want to lose my voicemail etc

    Thanks

    If you pay O2 for tethering they will enable it.
    If you don't pay O2 for tethering you are very likely to end up with a very, very high bill for data as tethering is specifically excluded from you data usage plan on the iPhone and they will almost certainly realise you are tethering and charge you.

    I went back and tried the other carrier file from .mobilconfig Generator by iPhone-notes.de and now I can tether and my voicemail works just fine.

    I am on AT&T in the US on my 16GB iPhone 3G 3.1.2 and the carrier file that worked for me is labeled "US AT&T -V8". I confirmed both tethering and voicemail work.

    Thanks for the link but as I stated I am on AT&T in the US and my phone is NOT unlocked, nor do I need it to be. Again, thanks anyway.
