Att made me wait years to be able to send mms thro my damn iPhone so I plan to enjoy my unlimited data and mywii for a long time.

PdaNet offers a hotspot for one time fee of $15.95(Regular $29). I prefer MyWi. Options for all are there, without needing a $20 monthly fee.

This must be the official intelliborn forums.
Tetherme is only $1.99 with a much cleaner native enabling of personal hotspot.
If you'd rather waste 10x the amount of money for the same thing, that's your business.
It's a shame it took so long for this option to be mentioned. Too many mywi drones in my way.Hmm...

The TetherMe author has already said he will be raising the price when 4.3 comes out and TetherMe doesn't allow you to control the power output of wifi.
EDIT: I hope the TetherMe author raises his price to $19.99 so all the people who have a pole stuck up their @#$ about the MyWi price will have to make room for another pole.

MyWi, Tetherme, and PDAnet will not last forever. Sooner or later the mobile companies will figure this all out and then start hammering people.

Who ever wrote this story really should give up!! Apple control what the iPhone can and can't do! Apple saw no need for mms or many other normal features and only add them when they steal the idea from the people that make it work for jailbreakers!

What makes me think this? Perhaps it's the existence of, you know, other countries outside the US. Here in the UK it was exactly the same story with O2. If I remember they were rather apologetic that iPhones couldn't do MMS at the time.
It wasn't AT&T "waiting until iOS 3.0" before making tethering available, it was Apple waiting until 3.0 to make it function at all.
Normally I don't complain about any of the front page news here, but this is an atrocious piece of slander and it's embarrassing for a site as big and popular as this.

I'm so glad that I jailbroke my original iPhone (and every iDevice since) straight out of the box. The benefits are countless and yet people I know are still reluctant to try it. Pretty much every complaint that people have about the iPhone can be solved by doing it. Get on the bandwagon everyone!

I think the main problem is that Att did not have to worry about other carriers with the iphone. They were always a little slow reacting to the industry as a whole.
The whole MMS issue was a perfect example. The functionality was there in June 09 and Att did not enable it until September 25th 09.
I had it in early beta 3.0 in March 09 doing the old "Sim Switch" which enabled it until Att swept the accounts more regularly.
Bottom line was Att was not ready with both the billing end of it (unchecking the Opt out box lol) and bolstering the network to handle the data influx.
This was very poor planing on Att's part and they had plenty of time to be ready for the 3.0 roll out.
Hell we were supposed to have native facetime over 3g by this past fall according to Steve Jobs at the announcement of the IP4 last year. I'm sure this is an Att issue not an apple issue. They are probably telling them they are not ready for it.
All this just goes to say that they are a bit slow when keeping up with the competition because they had none. Now the tide has changed and your seeing it with Hot Spot in 4.3
It may be a little later than Verizon, but it's there and has to be to keep up.
The next year will be interesting

Bravo (or anyone with verizon iPhone), can you confirm if 4.3 tether is infrastructure or adhoc hotspot . (can it tether to psp/ps3/x360
