While last time I jailbroke my iphone is didn't work well and I had to restore it, I'm extremely tempted to jailbreak again just for this app. There's alot of possibilities for it I think, and I love having to only have one data plan to buy.
One cool idea would be I usually keep my iphone docked in a holder in my car, which charges it. On a long car trip, say a few hours, someone else in my car could bring the ipad and use it, with internet, from the mywi on my iphone. Battery life wouldn't even be a concern since I'd have my iphone charging and the ipad obviously lasts a long, long time. It would be like having a full computer experience inside a moving car, awesome!
I take it AT&T has no idea of its use
and you will not get charged for tethering?
Unfortunately, new iPhone and OS on the
way. Hopefully it can also be jailbroken
so that MyWi can be used with it.
There have been zero reported cases of AT&T charging for this.Kerny,
First of all, unless you worded your response
wrong it's not the iPad usage I am concerned
about it's the 3G tethering.
AT&T would be charging extra for that.
And if you do tether the iPhone to the iPad
of course you would use it to browse the web
and stream videos.
So, my question stands. Does MyWi report
a tethering or fool the iPhone 3G into thinking
it is being used under WiFi conditions?
There have been zero reported cases of AT&T charging for this.
Use Redsn0w for Windows, it worked beautifully for me. Nothing else worked.I really want to give it a try, but I don't know how to jailbreak a 3G on OS 3.1.3.
Why not just jailbreak anyway? Even if they allow tethering (which they won't..or even if they do, it will be via a USB cable probably, which the iPad doesn't support) plus the new OS won't be out until summer...so why not jailbreak now?I am waiting to hear the outcome of this iPhone press event.... If tethering is not addressed, I am gonna jailbreak
Not sure on the Mac...I used Redsn0w but it was for Windows and it worked great.what is the best site for a tutorial on a jailbreak? i want to do it from my girlfriends iphone 3g 3.1.2 to get mywi. I have the 3gs but dont want to jailbreak that.
Also. I have a mac. Thanks
And one more thing. When I jailbreak and get mywi do I have to pay for it?
