    Hopefully they don't take it out again like they did with 3.x

    Knowing AT&T, they'll probably charge us for it...
    Even though we already pay for 'unlimited' internet.

    We'll just have to sit back and see what happens.

    I think that tethering being included by default is a bad thing because there is no way AT&T WON'T charge us for it and I rely HEAVILY on tethering. I'm using it right now

    Just to be clear, the iPhone OS has supported tethering since version 3.0. What's new in this beta is that Apple appears to have added the option to buy and enable tethering right from the phone. I think it is almost certain you will be charged for it.

    Oh and way to go AT&T! Nice job finally supporting tethering a year late! As always, I am simply in AWE of the quality of your cell phone service. ...Ok I'm done

    Will this mean we will not be able to use it if were using T-Mobile since they are asking us to contact AT&T? Well maybe we can do it if we call 611, but that would mean no cheap internet from T-Mobile.

    Hmmm... That is weird. On my iPhone 3G I had the option by default but it didn't say "Set Up Internet Tethering" it was just the option to turn off or on Internet Tethering, I am on 4.0 Beta 3.

    The question is not "will they charge us" but, how much. It would be nice to have this feature without JB but realistically the reason they charge us $30 now for "unlimited" data is because there is only so much bandwith you can use with an IPhone.

    I would like to see the #s but I doubt it will be cost effective for most of us. Most stand-alone mobile internet plains run about $60/month now and thats with 2 year contract. Internet tethering through iPhone will likely not be any difforent. So it would stand to reason we would see additional fees that would equal our current data plain, effectively doubling what we pay now. I do not think the iPad's data plain is a valid cost comparison because the iPad uses the same bandwith conserving app's that the iPhone uses. (like the youtube app that kills quality when on 3g vs wifi)

    These are my thoughts and I could be way off but this is AT&T we are talking about...
