    Default Tethering option...
    So I'm sure many noticed the tether option that comes with new iOS4 and 7.0 carrier settings.

    I called AT&T and they said they would enable free tethering *if*
    you go with the data rate change. Pffff

    They said *NO* tethering for grandfathered unlimited plans.

    Free? Very doubtful. The advertised price is $20 and you have to have the 2GB plan.

    I was looking around for any other info but didnt find any....I restored from my Jailbroken 3GS with tethering to the iphone 4 and now i have tethering and im on an unlimited plan. What I want to know is maybe its just a setting on the carrier file that locks us out or something. Cause now i have tethering but i want to do it for my sister but i dont want to restore from my back up. Anyone any ideas? Maybe a carrier file thats modded out there?

    Default I think this would work....
    Anyone have any input for this idea I have:
    I sold my iphone 3gs and bought the iphone 4. I still kept my unlimited data plan, now I have looked into the idea of getting a micro-sim to sim adapter

    So I can pull my sim out of my iphone 4 and put it in a usb 3g modem

    And there is optionally a 3g router that can share with more than one computer:

    I think that this would work, in the software you have to enter the apn info, username and password. My only concern is that it seems that you have to have it dial a number (*99#) for access. So I dont know if that would raise a flag to at&t or not.

    Any thoughts???
