iPhone Tethering Make Your iPhone a mobile Modem

Are you an iPhone user? Does your patience with AT&T and its lack of tethering get your goat? Well, here’s your chance to bring tethering to your iPhone without official support.

Richard Lai has come up with the easiest way to tether your iPhone’s internet connection to your computer, as promised by Apple, but delayed by AT&T. This “hack” doesn’t involve the Terminal, or even your Mac. It’s all done with the iPhone.

Simply navigate on your iPhone to: http://help.benm.at/help.php. Once there, download the MobileConfig file for your carrier. Choose the country your carrier is in, then choose the carrier your iPhone is subscribed to. For the United States, most folks will choose AT&T, but if you plan on unlocking your iPhone on Friday, you can choose T Mobile. The process does requires iPhone OS 3.0.

After the install, on your iPhone, go to Settings > General > Network > Internet Tethering, and enable tethering. Then, plug your iPhone in, and you are ready to go. We’re not sure about the legal implications of this method, but we tested it out for you, loyal readers. Click through the gallery below to see how it works for yourself. Previously, users had complained that Visual Voicemail stopped working after tethering, but we experienced no such problems.

Of course, AT&T will probably nuke this method before the end of the week, but think of the extra pain you caused the upper management.

Disclaimer: Tethering your iPhone without the proper data plan probably violates your carrier’s contract, and you should definitely back up your iPhone before doing this, just in case anything happens. Don’t say we didn’t warn you!
