    I moved into my mew place but unfortunately verizon shipped their modem to the wrong address. So I'm stuck with no Internet until Tuesday. I called AT&T and added the tether plan onto my 3GS account cuz my i4 account has unlimited data and they wouldn't let me tether on that. So I need to know the process of how to tether the iphone 3gs on my laptop. Please help. Thanks guys

    If you have a jailbroken iPhone, you can download MyWi from Cydia and use your phone as a hotspot. Instructions can be found here:

    I got it to work on the 3GS, I wish I could get it to work on the i4 but I just went up to 4.0.2. I tried my EVO as well and my Droid X but they didn't seem to want to play nicely today.

    In regards to MyWi, I have looked into this and wanted to purchase it previously, doesn't AT&T see you are using a sh!t load of data and going to suspect something?

    Tethering on a cell phone is not supposed to replace your home isp. All the cellco's will allow you to use data, but if you start downloading full length movies in hd, even if you have unlimited data, they're going to tell you to stop.

    Oh I know. It's for basic data use, browsing the web, e-mail, which is what I'm doing. I won't be doing any of that heavy stuff until Tuesday.

    I know. I was hoping he would go on a wild goose chase and then come back saying he couldn't find it.

    You can also switch the SIMs and use your unlimited plan on your 3GS. You'll need to buy a SIM adapter and figure out how to cut the miniSIM.
