    No tethering for iPhone 3G - The Unofficial Apple Weblog (TUAW)

    Over at iPhone Atlas they're reporting that AT&T is not planning to offer a tethering option for the forthcoming iPhone 3G. Right now AT&T does offer the option for many of their 3G phones, which allows you to use the phone as a cellular modem on a laptop as part of a $65/month data plan. According to an AT&T spokesman, however, no such Phone-As-Modem plan will be offered for the iPhone 3G.

    Just remember that tethering plans for other smartphones brings your data bill to $60/mo, and limits you to a total of 5gb of data to share between devices.

    Is this a hardware limitation or can it be bypassed with software?

    I just want to say this again. Before getting all upset at the lack of tethering, remember that At&t requires a tethering plan to use it on their other 3G phones, and that plan costs $60 a month.

    Tethering is certainly a nice option, but I can live without it. Tethering or not, the iPhone 3G is still a good phone. I wonder why tethering is not being offered, even with a higher data plan.

    Theres a way to do it on the current ones right? Why can't it work on the new ones as well?

    No idea. I've never tried to tether them together.

    I believe they were with some hacking.
