    The website FunkySpaceMonkey has an article on how to get free tethering without jailbreaking.
    Here is the article link

    Here's how it begins:

    Yeah, I'm also wondering if there are any devs here who would be willing to help others with this.

    Is it just me, or did anyone else find it entertaining to see the name of the network?

    I've worked with xcode a lot and designed an app, but I never paid for a dev account. :(

    I am pretty sure there's a lot of iPhone devs out there who read this and are thinking about trying it out themselves tomorrow. :D

    Wow, pretty cool to see this on MacRumors since I wrote the post for FSM. I would be willing to help a couple of people by adding to my Dev account. Just shoot me a PM with your UDID and I'll compile the app and send with a provisioning profile.

    This isn't for regular folks. It requires a $99 per year developer subscription from Apple to allow loading of coded apps to the iPhone.

    This seems really cool, I'd love to try it out.

    i cant figure out how to change the sdk from 3.1(thats what it is asking for) to 4.1. it says base sdk missing, so how would i change it

    Or jailbreak (now if you're on 3GS, or whenever it's available for iPhone 4) and pay $10 for MyWi.

    Or steal the cracked version, if that's your flavor.

    Any chance of anyone writing up a little step-by-step on how to do this? I've never used xcode but this would be worth the $99 developer registration to me (don't care to jailbreak).

    i can help to a certain point because im having some trouble. just download the file they ask and save it to your desktop, then unzip. once xcode is up go to file then open, go to the file u unzipped and when u go in there will be a file for an app (its blue and has the crossed pencils on it lol). but if u have the newest sdk then u have to change the sdk to 4.1 because it says "base sdk missing". i dont know how to change it to 4.1 but after that just build and go.

    Looks like it's possible to tether to iPad using this, but certainly a pain. Also, if you have Netshare this does the exact same thing.

    I don't think it's possible to tether the iPad to the iPhone, even with iProxy or NetShare.

    The problem lies in having to "create" a wireless network first. Only your Mac/PC can do it. The iPhone and iPad can only join an existing wireless network.

    MyWi actually creates a wireless network ("hotspot," if you will).

    Erica Sadun on TUAW posted an article a while back on how some developers are able to "re-sign" another person's application, so before iProxy was around, developers were supposedly grabbing someone else's NetShare purchase, resigning the app as their own, then making it able to launch on development devices.

    I don't know if it's possible to do with MyWi, since there'd be some actual modification of the code involved.

    I've never resigned anyone's app, and my iPad 3G's no longer jailbroken (don't have MyWi), so I'm not able to test these theories out.

    But, restating what I said first, the iPad won't be able to connect natively to the iPhone's internet connection, even with AT&T's official tethering method.

    Tried to get this working for about 2 minutes, the iProxy app seems to keep crashing. I'll give it another shot later today...

    Option click on the drop down box to select a different SDK. Or change the Base SDK in the project settings.

    PM me if you have any problems, other than compiling with Xcode (which is very easy) the instructions are pretty clear.
