    Hey guys,

    There are many threads on tethering right now, but I wanted to post the method that seems to work for most everyone. I'll quote the original author:

    The file he refers to is attached to this message (Thanks again, zilian77).

    Note: If you don't understand any of this, chances are you probably shouldn't be doing it.

    If IPC is "Greyed Out": When alt+clicking the restore iPhone to put the carrier settings and it is greyed out, remove the file from the mounted disk image first, then select it (from your desktop, for example).

    And I reiterate, MMS IS NOT WORKING. We have yet to figure this out. If anyone does get to to definitively work, post here and I'll update this top post. So far we have gotten the camera icon to show up on the Messages.app.

    That's way more complicated than it needs to be. Just do this:

    1) Download file
    2) Remove .txt extension
    3) E-mail the file to whatever e-mail you read on your iphone
    4) Open mail and click on attached file to install
    5) Ignore warning that pops up

    Do not use this!!! It breaks Visual Voicemail.

    Please put a disclaimer in your first post stating this fact.

    Im posting the original post again!

    Allright so far I have tethering working and MMS does show up in messages but does not work also my Visual Voicemail is working, I'm running 3.0(7a341) leaked on torrents a couple days ago.

    this is what i did,

    1) Downloaded the "mobilecongfig" from http://www.benm.at/help/ yesterday, but i managed to upload it here. (DO NOT DOWNLOAD FROM THE benm.at SITE CAUSE SOMEONE MESSED IT UP OVER THERE)*

    *download and unzip. then e-mail to self, open on Mail on iPhone, Install.

    2) Did this according to Instructions (I believe it's mac only) http://9to5mac.com/iPhone-3G-tethering

    3) "Cellular Data Network" menu appeared under "settings" > "general" > "network"

    4) put in the info supplied for MMS on http://www.benm.at/help/

    U.S.A
    AT&T
    APN: wap.cingular
    User: wap@cingulargprs.com
    Pw: CINGULAR1
    MMSC: mmsc.cingular.com
    Proxy: 66.209.11.32


    5) At this point my VV wasn't working so tried the advice from a comment,

    "EASY VOICEMAIL FIX! (restores original carrier settings)

    Wed, 06/17/2009 - 11:29 — ben (not verified) 0 points
    Ok heres how you fix your voice mail-
    1. Connect the phone to itunes and option click restore
    2. Navigate to your user name->Library->iTunes->iPhone Carrier Support
    3. Select the file contained within "iPhone Carrier Support" and proceed
    You now have your voicemail working again"

    6) took out sim and put it back in while restarting the phone.

    Theese Instructions are AT&T only! and is what worked for me, MMS still doesn't work but at last I see the camera icon! lol!

    I'm sorry I'm a bit biased! nah jk, it's just that I don't have windows and don't know how to do it... this is what has been working so far for tethering and camera icons in messages.app
