I use PDANet along with a VPN and it works excellent. It must be done in the right order, though. If the VPN drops off while tethering you're exposed! I turn on PDANet first and enable the WiFi hotspot. I do not connect to the hotspot. I enable VPN, then connect to the hotspot. Doing things in this order remains very stable and the VPN does not fall off.
It would be impossible to completely hide tethering. A laptop uses more ports and does too many detectable things. Enabling VPN on the iPhone hides everything that goes on.
Overplay VPN works good for me. It's cheaper than tether charges, plus I have excellent protection whether going through the iPhone and enabling VPN on the iPhone, or enabling VPN on my laptop when on a public WiFi. I get all with one account.

For those saying "can't wait for Sprint iPhone, real unlimited plan!" just note that unlimited data on AT&T as well as Verizon was $30 a month. Know how much Sprint's is? A little over $70 a month. Have a great time on Sprint!

That because most of the people here in the US are a buncha squares who just accept the cards they are dealt instead of getting up and going to a different table!

All this nonsense about clogging up the network is not the reason. All of the carriers are focused on one thing, profit. If they can find a way to get money from you will. Remember with ATT you have no choice with the iPhone, you must have a data account with it. They want you to use lots of data bandwidth AND they want to get paid by you for doing it.
I use 2 gigs a month and that's from using pandora to stream audio on my way to work and back.

Its sad to say they can govern our use of data. I really hope Sprint doesn't get rid of their unlimited plan and the iphone will come to that carrier.
This is what I had to do to get unlimited data...I got a Clearwireless 4G hotspot. Clear isn't the great company but at least its unlimited and since I travel a lot. There is a lot of down time I like to watch youtube video's etc......and trust me 2GB isn't going to cut it.

I feel that someone is going to be able to figure out how to avoid whatever these carriers are using to detect if someone is tethering legitimately or not.
It's a damn shame that someone will have to do so in the first place.

Don't get me wrong I hate that these companies think they still own ur device even after u buy it and own u 2. But we all hate it but we all still buy there products, this is also a reason y the dev teams need to stop with the social network beefin with each other n stick together to out smart these companies

It's the only way to get unlimited data with Sprint. $69.99 Unlimited text and data 450 anytime minutes. Call any cell phone in US unlimited. Extra $10 if you get a 4G phone. Even if you don't have 4G coverage.
