    Hi there.

    I own an iPhone 4 and an iPad 2 (WiFi) Model. I am planning to use MyWi to tether my iPhone4's 3G internet to use on iPad. i live in japan and my carrier is Softbank and they told me that they dont allow tethering, i was wondering how they get to know that i am tethering??

    I live in Atsugi, and although i have had my Iphone less than a week i have been tethering with it all day using the 3g and wifi as my sources.

    I know people that have done it for months now. no overcharges/problems

    all you need to do is jailbreak it.

    What app you are using for tethering? MyWi or Pdanet?
