How To Enable Tethering on iPhone 3.0 with AT&T

After patiently waiting for weeks and weeks, I finally got a chance to download the new iPhone 3.0 firmware today.  I’ve been very interested in the tethering feature and I was pretty disappointed to find out that AT&T wasn’t going to be supporting this feature. You might remember one of my first posts about an iPhone app called NetShare. I’ve been using NetShare to tether on my iPhone 3G for over a year now. It’s a great app, but it’s truly a pain to setup each time I want to use it.

I found out today (just around 1pm EST when the 3.0 firmware was released) that there is a way to enable the tethering feature, even on AT&T! After work I decided to give it a try and sure enough, it worked!

*UPDATED* (6/18 9a): For instructions on how to get this working on the iPhone 3G with Mac OSX 10.5.7, go here. Here is the ATT_US.ipcc file I created which addresses any issues you might have with Visual Voicemail using the file from the above site.

What do I do with that file? It looks like machine code. or a text file. Can you upload a version packaged in dmg so all peeps need to do is follow the instructions?

If you follow the instructions at the link I posted (“here”) it tells you what to do with that file. Basically, you have to go into iTunes, choose the iPhone from the Devices section on the left.. Then option and click the “Check for Updates” button. This will allow you to upload the file.

Thanks man. I downloaded another file and my visual voicemail died. This was very useful. Thanks a lot.
