I found that PDANet does not work with iPhone 5 or any iPhone on iOS 6.
It seems that there are now only two options for JB tethering, MyWi or TetherMe. My question is, can AT&T detect the use of either one?
I think that they started catching MyWi users some time ago, but I don't know if that was fixed, and their web site suggests that it wasn't.
TetherMe apparently claims to be undetectable, but I don't know how true that is.
I don't need to use it very much, I would just like it as a backup in case my Internet does down, like it did a couple of weeks ago, or if I'm in the doctor's waiting room or something, so I can use the big iPad screen instead of my little iPhone.iPhone 5s, iPhone 5, iPad 2

I used to have a Galaxy Nexus and with that I used a custom ROM that Did pretty much what TetherMe does to the iPhone, allows you to use the built in tethering instead of adding a separate app for that functionality. I Was never caught.
I would assume the situation is much the same for the iPhone. As long as your data usage doesnt increase significantly (like going from using 1.5gigs a month to like 7 gigs) I dont think you have to worry about the carrier finding out (or caring). Besides, if you arent on an unlimited plan the carrier is still charging you for any data you use that exceeds your limit as tethering still dips into your monthly allowance.
My whole reason for jailbreaking the ip5 was to get my tethering capability back. I was missing the ability to tether my iPad while I was away from home SO bad, and wasnt about to drop my unlimited data to edit my plan for tethering. I chose TetherMe, and it works just fine.
MyWi is expensive as compared to tetherme $20 (25 if you include on-demand) compared to 5. But MyWi also apparantly has a LOT more features worth looking into if you intend on using your hotspot frequently.

If you don't need all the fancy add-ons that come with MyWi than I say go with TetherMe. It just activates the built-in tether app and works perfectly on iOS 6. AND I have never had any issues with Verizon finding out.

Using tetherme for the first time on Sprint (LTE) I have been unable to confirm for certain anywhere that the carrier doesn't catch on. Can anyone confirm? Also does it make a difference if its set to automatic or usedataapn? Thanks!
