    Now that Apple has a commitment from ATT for data pricing packages for the iPad, could the ability to tether an iPhone to a laptop work as well? It seems that this was a popular feature advertised quite some time ago that was a big deal at one time, but I have not heard much mention of it lately. If so, could this compete with the iPad if you have a 3Gs iPhone and an Apple laptop? I guess the next step would be the ability to load apps on a laptop.

    What ever happened to tethering anyway?

    It's on the ROCK app, it's called MyWi. JB and be done with it already, you'd have free tethering.

    Not sure if you were kidding or what, but I found no evidence of tethering in a ROCK or MyWi app or any other app.

    Thanks for clearing that up. I was thinking that ATT would offer tethering. At least when I bought my iPhone that is what I was led to believe would be coming in the near future. I don't really want to jailbreak my phone.

    I jailbroke to tether, but I hope AT&T comes out with tethering plans finally. I would like to be able to update my phone without playing cat and mouse.
