    Is there anyway for me to do a wired tether so I can use my laptop on the go, without letting the carrier know?

    Not legally of course, but yes it can be done :)

    Incase you havent guessed, you need to be jailbroken.

    There are a bunch of tethering apps in the cydia store, I think all of which cost money.

    The best one however, is called MyWi and does exactly what you need and much more.

    Cheers.

    If you need help jailbreaking just let me know.

    I'm aware I need to be jailbroken but if I'm not mistaken, isn't MyWi wireless tethering only? Is there a way for my to do it through USB? Also, If I use MyWi will I still get my incoming calls?

    Mywi also does USB tethering.

    Wired or wireless tethering is available through native or JB.

    Without letting carrier know? Impossible.

    Quite ironic how this thread isn't attacked or deleted. It's ok to request for advice on how to tether illegally but anything related to Installous or even Pandora Hack is shunned on this forum. Yes I know it's stated in the forum rules but maybe it needs to be revised to forbid any posts about illegal tethering or otherwise...allow such discussions. Seems very hypocritical to me.

    Only took five posts to get to this tired, spent, overused and false argument.
    That just may be some kind of a record.

    I think there is a difference. Violating copyright law by copying software is actually against the law. You can go to jail for it. Tethering on your AT&T iPhone without paying for a plan is simply a violation of your contract with AT&T. The worst they can do is send you a bill or cancel your contract. That is a huge difference.

    You are correct about the difference between violating copyright law and violating of your contract. But carrier can sue you if you don't pay the charges for tethering. Not like they will do it for a small amount of money but it's also illegal.

    agreed and copyright laws are pretty vague when the end user(stealer) is not re-selling the product they stole

    maybe not but i would think the punishment would be firmer if your caught selling copywritten material, then downloading it or torrent sites would never exist
