    I apologize if there's a thread on this already, but I can't find it. I d/l Tetherme from Cydia, shows I've purchased it, but not recognizing it when I go to Network/Internet Tethering. Tells me to Call/Go To Website. I'm sure I'm not the only one with this- any ideas?

    Thanks

    I don't use tetherme but it sounds like you are trying to use the native tethering functionality which is different from tetherme and part of AT&T which is something you'll have to pay $20 a month to use.

    Tetherme turns on the native tethering functionality without paying $20 to AT&T.

    Thanks for the quick responses- there is a patch in Cydia called TetherMe APN Editing that fixed the problem immediately. Found it when I checked to see if tetherme was a native app.

    Thanks again for the help-

    Mm, I have TetherMe only and it still enables me to do native tethering without downloading the APN Editing. I don't know why you needed that too, but if you find out why, let us know.
