    Everything I read said to just enable Bluetooth tethering after JBing, but i don't see the option to. I wanted to use my iPhone for Internet via a Bluetooth connection with my MacBook. I jb with blackra1n and I'm using iPhone 3G 3.1.2. Do I have to unlock it as well? Or use blacksn0w instead?

    To clarify;
    blackra1n = jailbreak
    sn0w aka blacksn0w = unlock

    If you mean tethering, as in using the data service from your iPhone so you can get your MacBook online, you need to install PdaNet. You can go to the developer's website for more information.

    So what is Bluetooth tethering all about? I thought it was to share your phones Internet?

    You still need to install PdaNet. I don't know if the Mac version supports BT tethering or not - I use a pc.

    First off, DONT GET PDANET, it sucks. Second Get MyWi from Cydia or ROCK APP. Best Tethering App available.

    BT tethering is just like Wifi tethering or USB tethering but just via the bluetooth in the phone and your computer, establish BT connection from your PC's BT and iPhone BT and boom BT Tethering.

    To clear things up since you seem confused. Just because you jailbroke doesn't mean tethering magically shows up. You need to install tweaks or apps for that. Once you install MyWi(my advice) tetheirng is instant from there.

    Maybe you should learn more about how to tether and what it is before you just go and do it.

    Good luck

    EDIT: You seem real confused, you should google the process for sure.

    touchmyphone, why do you hate Pdanet? I've used it for years, first on Palm, then on WinMo, and then on my iPhone. I love it. It's dependable and easy.

    I found it to be terribly slow. Also, MyWi create's essentially a hot spot so that more than one PC/Tablet/Phone can connect to it. Thats why, basically it feeds my needs better hahaha. PDANet is cool, just MyWi works better for my needs

    Try not to hijacks others help threads. Keeps it more orderly here

    You can tether to anything that has Wifi available, or via USB to MAC/PC's

    If your jailbroken you do not need to use mifi or pdanet or any of the wifi crappy tethering (not to mention paid) apps. Search the web for Att carrier file 6.0 and install it using itunes. you will be able to use the native Bluetooth tethering and usb tethering. have been using it since MMS was released

    >> Search the web for Att carrier file 6.0 and install it using itunes.

    again..ive been using it since mms was released .. this was the carrier file i installed to enable mms(+tethering on my phone). i have not had a single issue and it works flawlessly. both through usb and bluetooth. i even have the sbsettings toggle to enable and disable tethering.

    What about voicemail? I used unlockit.co.nz and help.benm.at and got carrier files but could not get my visual voicemail working.

    Hiya all I am new to this and wanted to introduce myself and i just went on to jb my phone using the blackrain then to unlock i went to snow but how do i know its unlocked

    Diff, try them both. If you prefer MyWi, buy it. Pdanet is free.

    harleybabe, if you can put another carrier's sim in your iPhone and make calls, the unlock worked.

    Follow-up...

    After you have JB your phone & added PdaNet, you are suppose to change a root password, right? This is because someone can hack into your phone and ask for $$ to release it?

    No, not at all. That's only for SSH I believe.

    I'm behind in the iPhone terminology. Trying to get current on the in's & out's of JBing & things associated with it.

    Is there a risk of being in public & using wifi? The term associated with this is "sniffed.

    SSH - So, if I do not use or disable SSH I do not need to change the root password after I JB my phone?

    Sorry if this conversation should be posted elsewhere.

    it supports wifi or direct cable only. I couldn't get wifi to work so I went with the cable connection. the benefit to me of the cable is it keeps the phone charged and the connection up
