    Now that we've gotten that out of the way, we can get to the fun part.

    This works on Mac and PC, but if someone could posts some Windows screenshots, that would be great.

    1. From your iPhone, open Safari and visit the nice little iPhone-optimized website - http://help.benm.at/usa.php

    2. Select AT&T (you could choose T-Mobile if you use their service, but this guide is geared toward AT&T users)

    3. That will download a file, and subsequently open up Settings.

    Tap Replace.

    5. You will be taken back to Safari, which you can quit. Open up Settings, and in General > Network, You should see an option for Internet Tethering. Select it, and now you see an ON/OFF switch, with some nice instructions.

    Bluetooth -

    1. Pair iPhone with your computer, Bluetooth must be enabled in both your computer and iPhone.

    Once again, I am not responsible for any additional fees showing uo on your bill, though personally, I don't think you should have a problem if you keep your Usage under normal levels.

    * Mac + Windows screenshots should be up shortly, though they aren't that necessary, and some PC's may have different Bluetooth software/drivers.
