How To Enable Internet Tethering on iPhone 3.0

Note: The newest iPhone software disables the ability to tether, so if you want to be able to use internet tethering on iPhone make sure you stick with iPhone version 3.0!

I’m going to veer from regularly scheduled programming (and we won’t talk about the fact that I haven’t updated in, like, 6 weeks) to share how to enable internet tethering on iPhone. I mistakenly believed that it would be easy to just do a lil ‘ole Google search and find what I needed but, alas, it was harder to find than a flaccid willy in a strip bar.

Disclaimer: I neither guarantee this site nor do I guarantee this download. If you do it – you do it at your own risk! Make sure you have an unlimited data bundle on your service as this will bill as data on your wireless bill. CWD has a high enough cell bill; I’m not going to be responsible when you’ve racked up 1087 data hours surfing porn after enabling tethering on your iPhone.

How To Enable Internet Tethering on iPhone

Go to this site from your iPhone:

Enable Internet Tethering on iPhone

The download will start on your iPhone, just follow the steps and choose your settings as you go. I chose USB as my connection.

  • Reboot your phone (Do NOT change settings on your phone until you’ve rebooted!)

Once you reboot:

  • Go to Settings -> General -> Network -> Internet Tethering -> On>

That’s it! Connect your laptop/PC (haven’t tried on my Mac yet) to your iPhone via USB or Bluetooth and you will see the iPhone as a device. When I connected mine it did so automatically and I didn’t have to change anything. The connection (for me) is lightning fast, even faster than my cable at home! Who says AT&T is not yet supporting tethering on iPhone? Not CWD. 😉

Enjoy!
