    Default Tethering Nexus7 to Iphone4

    Hi all,

    I read the FAQ but didn't find the answer to my question (maybe because i don't understand the process well enough.)

    I have an iPhone4 (verizon, locked, not jailbroken) and would like to tether my Nexus to it for occasionally data use. I tried to do it and they connected fine but I couldnt access the internet. I'm getting this message "Your phone is not currently set up to be used as a modem or mobile hotspot". I was told this was because I'm locked to Verizon. For service I'm using Pageplus.

    I know I can't unlock it. Can I jailbreak it and use a 3rd party app such as tetherme (or a better one) to get access to data on my Nexus?

    Thanks for any info.

    John

    I think that would work but I'm not 100% sure

    You should be able to jailbreak it and use mywi to tether.
