The AT&T (Beta) doesn't work on my iPhone 3G which I manually sync every couple of weeks via iTunes 9.1 (79) via my MacBook Pro running Mac OS X "Snow Leopard" 10.6.3 ERROR MESSAGE (below): Invalid Profile Profile format not recognized OK Please let us know when this works again since my BIGGEST disappointment with the iPhone is no tethering... so I keep my "vintage" Palm Treo 700p on my wife's Sprint account fo r$10 a month for unlimited tethering via USBmodem (Mac) and PDAnet (WinXP Pro)... works GREAT and NO GOOD REASON AT&T CAN'T PROVIDE THIS other than their network couldn't handle the load.

I used this method earlier today, and i have the ATT Unlimited Data Plan. I also have a app that shows how many minutes ive used etc. well Until after i installed this app it said pay per internet use right about my data plan, and it acknowledged 0.3mb from where i did a speedtest with my laptop. So im kinda etchy on this, also i heard that ATT is supposedly releasing a update sept 25 for mms, so i have no idea. All i know is the Internet Pay Per Use wasnt there until after i did that and did a speedtest. Im not trying to piss anyone off or anything i just dont want someone to have a crazy bill.

I have followed the instructions and it works great on my two friend's non-jailbroken 3GS iPhones. However, I only get "Local Access" when trying to tether on my Windows Vista machine. Has anybody jailbroken their iPhone a otten the tethering to work or know why I may be having trouble? I followed the jailbreak tutorial on this site.

I tried it. It actually installed it but it wont connect to the internet . It tell you to contact Tmobile to turn on that option so I was like ok forget that. For that set up its easy only takes few minutes.

Working (almost) fine in Chile with Movistar, but only through cable. Couldn't make it work ussing bluetooth (with a PC). Only issue, when i tried to turn tethering off, it wont. Tried also turning on/off the flight mode, nothing happened. Only solution was powering off/on the iphone. Any one experiencing this problem also?. Cheers, such a great community you have here mates, proud to be an iphone owner! eduran (others chilean's iphone owners/developers/hacker/etc let get in (capacitive) touch!)
