    If you want to Jailbreak, you can use Tetherme.

    You aren't allowed to tether on a Straight Talk plan, so it's disabled from the Settings menu.

    There is an iPhone 5 jailbreak. I did it last night right after I got my phone.

    There's been one for about 10 days now.
    Look for Evasi0n 1.3

    I've never tried it myself, but doesn't Straight Talk throttle your speed to a crawl if you use a lot of data in a short period of time? My guess is that is their way of blocking TetherMe without being able to detect it directly.

    I personally like MyWi but I don't think I have ever seen a tethering app for free. MyWi does give a free trial though.

    i was able to tether with pdaNet. do u guys think its a viable solution ? it worked and im not gonna tether to like stream large files its just im a mobile dj and sometimes i want to downlaod a song on my macbook while im on the road. i used to do it with my android phone and it was so easy there was even a toggle for it so with just one click i was able to get internet on any device. but yeah pdanet seems to work

    Do you download the music in iTunes? I think you could download a song using iTunes on your phone, then plug it into your MacBook to sync it over.

    The iPhone has a simple toggle to turn on hotspot, it just disappears for plans that don't allow it.

    You need to jailbreak in order to tether with straighttalk
