Is there any application aviable on the app store that is like netshare.

It allows you to use your iphone data connection and share it over wireless.

Is there any other way of doing this, without paying o2 £10 extra for it!

cheers

I was tempted to, but is there no other way i can keep it locked, and download the netshare app from anywhere?
Jailbreaking != unlocking. And, no, Apple isn't about to approve an app that allows you to violate the terms of your O2 contract. And unjailbroken phones can't install any apps not approved by Apple. That's kinda the point of jailbreaking.

You can jailbreak it without unlocking it (if that's what you meant by "locked" above). Just jb it and buy PDANet or Mywi.

Jailbreaking is what allows your phone to run non-approved code. There is no other way to do that. But why are you so worried about having your phone jailbroken? All jailbreaking does is give you root access to your filesystem.

Then either don't install SSH (it isn't installed automatically) or, if you do, change your root and mobile passwords. This whole thing applies only to people who chose to install an app to turn their phone into an SSH server, who left it running at all times, and who didn't bother to take the very basic security precaution of setting a new password. As usual, it's getting blown way out of proportion by a media that has no clue about technology.
