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...

This is great news for some even though 3.1.3 update is out now they have to work on that as well . Busy , busy , busy .

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.

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!Does this rag smell like chloroform to you?

I have T-Mobile and I have MyWi (for when I wanna do hotspot) and I have tethering thru settings via USB or Bluetooth. to get the one in settings->general->network->celular data network, I just install the "MMS & Tethering Settings" package from cydia

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.

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

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.He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes.

.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.
