    Hi, can you tether an iphone 3g to an laptop so it has internet anywhere?

    I do see it on the apple site as a feature but how does it work then?

    also i read everywhere that it is not a feature and you could do it via jailbreak

    Any awnsers?

    Thanks

    It is a feature. I also inquired about this with my company: Rogers Wireless. They said this:

    If you go to: General: Network - There's a button that says "Set Up Internet Tethering"

    Here's the screen-shots and the message I get when clicking it!

    Then go to Settings: General: Network and click "Set Up Internet Tethering" and it should automatically just guide you step-by-step I believe.

    You have to jailbreak your phone to use tethering.

    PDANet and MyWi work fantastically for that.
    I purchased MyWi and it has been working fantastically, although I've only used Wi-Fi tethering.

    You may or may not have tethering on your phone depending on location and carrier. I have AT&T and I live in the U.S.

    I downloaded modified carrier settings and used ssh to apply them (copy and paste is all) and now I have tethering in my settings.

    I actually use tethering to download big files because I have satellite internet with a bandwidth limit.
