    Hi all

    I have searched the app store, but I am unable to find one that allows me to connect my iphone to my macbook to allow me to access the internet on the macbook.

    Has anyone come across one??

    Thanks

    You won't find one. You can't tether with the iPhone, unless you are jailbroken. If you are jailbroken, an app is available to allow you to do this.

    There was a program in the App store for a few days called Netshare, but it was pulled because it apparently violated AT&T service agreements or something like that.

    I managed to snag it when it was available and I use it in emergencies. It works pretty well except you can't use msn nor can you retrieve mail through apple mail. But surfing is perfect.

    If I knew a friend with Netshare would it worked if I synced my iPhone on his iTunes account?

    I have NetShare, works great. Not on App Store anymore though... but let's just say there are other ways of obtaining it now (FYI, I paid for it).

    Yes - that's exactly how PDANet works. It's super-easy to set it up too.

    What? Step by step:

    1. Jailbreak
    2. Install PdaNet
    3. Tether

    http://www.theiphoneblog.com/2008/10/16/how-to-tether-with-pdanet/

    I will never understand why people will Jailbreak to use a pirated copy of NetShare when they can just jailbreak and use PdaNet which is a thousand times better.

    And if you're willing to pirate apps, there're even cracks for PdaNet now that it's a trial. So why Jailbreak and pirate Netshare when you can jailbreak and pirate PdaNet?

    The General knows what he speaks. I used his instructions to tether using a
    socks-proxy way back in Sept. 2007, and it worked, but was pretty time-consuming
    to set up. All NetShare does is semi-automates the same method, but it still sucks
    because you're limited to HTTP port (80), so no Mail, AIM, FTP, ect.

    PdaNet isn't 1000 times better - it's at least 1,000,000 times better. ;)

    I hope you PdaNet users appreciate how good you have it!
