    I want to update to 3.1.2 to use AppStore apps that require 3.1 and take full advantage of MobileMe's, Find My iPhone, as I have a year membership. I use tethering EVERYDAY but I also want to update.

    Anyway I need to know if one of those programs are just as good or better than the tethering you get my install the MobileConfig from benm.at?

    Thanks in advance!

    Use the regular iPhone tethering; it is easier to use than iPhoneModem or PDAnet (I have not tried MyWi). Plus the built in tethering is free; the other programs want you to pay for full use after a trial version.

    Using PDANet right now, works like a charm, only problem is, is that you have to keep it open :/...or you can use backgrounder.

    mywii works amazing, especially if you need to/want to set up a wi-fi network. And it keeps track of your data usage.

    Well, I recently updated to 3.1.2 and so I can use tethering yet, well, idk yet. I have to do some research and testing to see if tethering will work.

    That method doesn't work with 3.1.X as of now, only 3.0, PDANet works great

    only problem is that you need to have it installed on your computer as well.

    Thanks for the info; I didn't realize I couldn't tether until reading your post and gave it a try; I still had the menu but couldn't get it to work
