Lets say, iOS 6 they never are able to jailbreak which is looking like it's possible. How long do you think you will be jailbroken for? I'm thinking that I'm going to be jailbroken for as long as my iPhone 4S lasts. Tethering is a very good feature to have and I currently like to keep my iPad mini in my jacket pocket and I take it everywhere. I also like to be able to tethering my iPad 3. I would have to give that up if I settled for a non jailbroken phone, and right now there isn't a feature around that could cause me to give that up. Right now with Tetherme, I'm pretty much only using my phone for calls, and as an iPod in the car. Most of my friends use iPhones and I can text them on my iPad mini. So I'm thinking about using my phone forever. Really at this point if it weren't for the ability to tether I could probably get buy with the flip phone that I had 7 years ago and use the mini as my main mobile device.
