Ok so I am one of the few who obtained 'legal' tethering! yay!! Haha. I haven't really had much use for it yet so today was my first real experience with it for more than just a couple minutes. I'm in a little po-dunk town with no 3g so I was forced to use edge for my tethering process. Oh well. It actually worked faster than I was expecting. BUT I haven't even been on for an hour and a half yet and my battery which was FULLY charged at the beginning now has LESS than half of its battery life! Ok, I thought the iphone 3g was suppsed to have 8 hours of edge internet usage, but with tethering it looks like I'll be lucky to get 2 and a half out of it!! I'm afriad if I used 3g I'd only get 1 and a half! Is this normal? I know, I know, I could EASILY plug my iphone into my laptop, but what if I just don't want to do that!?
