    EDIT - Explanation from my later post:
    Original post:

    I can't be the only one, but a quick search shows otherwise.

    I'm on 3.1 jailbroken, and tethering is working perfectly fine. I turn it and, and sure enough, it works.

    I'm using the AT&T 5.0 carrier file, not the official one. Aside from that, I haven't the slightest clue what I did different than anyone else.

    Is this "just working" for anyone else?

    Do your MMS and VVM work as well? If so, can you upload the ipcc? 3.1 would be perfect for me if I could get tethering.

    My MMS works fine, VVM... I really have no idea. I have a MediaNet plan and have my voicemail forward to YouMail.

    It's the carrier file from here:

    Only annoyance is every time I plug it into iTunes it pops up and asks me to update the carrier file.

    doesn't seem to work for me... could you post a screenshot w/ tethering active while viewing the firmware version?

    ITT: I look like a jackass.

    I hadn't actually tried Tethering since I've been in the basement of a library for the last six hours where I got no service, but the menu option was there and I could turn it on.

    So back at home I did, paired it with my computer, and when I connect to the Bluetooth network it popped up a little connection error and on my iPhone it canceled out of the Tethering screen and now it's not an option in the menu anymore.

    Point being: Oops. Sorry to waste your time.

    ahh, that sucks. Oh well, there probably will eventually be a jailbreak app that allows for tethering
