    With the release of 3.0 and bluetooth enabling, will I will be able to tether my iPod touch to my phone and use it as a modem? That is the last thing I need for my iPod and I will be happy without getting an iPhone.

    It's works right now with my Macbook Pro and iPhone so it's possible. I'm sure there will be a nice fee for it though.

    If you're using Windows Mobile, you can buy WMWiFiRouter.

    It uses your phone's data and can transmit it to your iPod via Wi-Fi.

    Hm, does it have to be like a smart phone? I have an ordinary LG Voyager on Verizon, so would that work? I have an unlimited data plan on it...

    Any phone with an unlimited data plan works. just use a cradlepoint instead though if you don't have a phone with wifi built in or if its a regular phone. with the voyager you should just use a cradlepoint.

    How about a blackberry? Will there be a way to connect via bluetooth and use the 'berry as a modem? That would be the ultimate.

    My work internet blocks all streams . . . but they pay for my 'berry and it's unlimited data plan. If I could use BT to connect to the 'berry to stream Sirius XM (when that app gets released), I'd be a happy man.

    I think people don't understand what tethering is.

    Tethering is sharing your cell phones internet connection with your computer. An iPod Touch is not capable of tethering because it is not a phone. If you have a phone that is able to tether via WiFi connection, then you can get WiFi anywhere.

    Let's get this straight:
    In apple's Q & A session at the end of the 3.0 preview, they said the were WORKING on tethering, and it would depend on negotiations with the carrier if you were able to use it. The only reason people have tethering with there 3G iPhones right NOW, is because the edited some files and made it work. Tethering is taking your phones internet connection and sending it to your computer. And for those of you with BlackBerry's or other phones with bluetooth(which is basically every phone now-a-days), you will NOT(without jailbreak) be able to use your cell phones internet on your iPod Touch 2G.
