How to tether iPhone date on iOS 4.0.1?
I was wondering how I can enable the native iPhone tethering on ios 4.0.1. I have an iPhone 4 and I'm jailbroken but I don't want to shell out 20 bucks for MyWi. Is there any way to just tether natively? Also I have the unlimited data plan so tethering shouldn't be a problem.

Not to be rude, but, i mean, it's $20. The plan legally if you buy it is $20/month, you're only paying a 1 time $20 fee. So IMO don't be so cheap and just buy the damn MyWi. If not there's iTether, PDANet but either way shell out some minor duckets to get a quality app...

Technically, the AT&T tethering plan isn't $20/month...it actually comes out to $5/month over the unlimited data plan ($35 for data service with tethering for 2gb), my max usage thus far, after having it with the iPhone 4 has been right at 3gb/month (which adds another $10 for 1gb extra)...so $15 extra per month for really great tethering service. In my opinion, and based on my experience with air cards and Clearwire service, AT&T's iPhone tethering is a steal...

And i thought my post made it pretty clear i knew you couldnt tether with unlimited anymore. The problem i always had with the JB method was the fact that once you update and the JB isnt good anymore, neither is the free tethering...not to mention the stories of people being bumped from unlimited simply based on their high usage of JB'ed tethering.

how do you figure tethering is $10? its $25 for 2GB and another $20 for tethering brining it to $45 a month for data and tethering. That in my math is $15 MORE than the $30 unlimited plus JB and using MyWi.
From AT&T website:
Our DataPro plan is $25 per month and includes 2 GB of data (the equivalent of downloading 1,000 60-second YouTube videos every month). This plan is designed for our customers who regularly download or stream music and video, or use other high bandwidth applications. Additionally, iPhone and smartphone customers who choose DataPro will have the option to add tethering for $20 per month.

It was simply a misunderstanding of the rate on my part...when i signed up i thought the $10/month charge was what the rate was, but that was my prorated amount for the month i signed up for service...it is $20.
But again, even at that rate, im still beating out clearwire and sprint service, both of which cost more and didnt provide as good or better service than the tethering.
Now call off your hordes of pitchfork wielding hostels, just an error folks.

I don't think PDANet is free, either. I think it's a trial or something, unless it's changed.
I'm on the AT&T plan myself. It's a total ripoff but it "just works," and I'm willing to pay for "just works" over "might work sometimes" or "will probably work again after a restart" which has been my experience with PDANet.

It allows for USB tethering and tethering over Bluetooth. Yes Bluetooth is capped at 3mb/s but good luck getting more than 3mb/s on 3G. I have it and it works great.
If you want to tether to iPad, just get iTether for the iPad.
