    I remember right after the iPhone came out that there was talk about using the phone as a modem.

    I could do this with my Blackberry. Can I do it with the iPhone? Where are the settings?

    If not, why?

    My guess is that AT&T doesn't want people to use a $20/month data plan for tethering when their other data plans that allow tethering start at $60/month.

    There was a hack that allowed tethering, but it didn't look too easy, and I haven't heard if it still works after the 1.1.1 upgrade.

    Its both possible and illegal and could lead to the termination of your service if they find out.

    Here are two sites to help you find some info:
