    The 3G limit on the iPhone is 20MB. My3G is another app to trick your phone in to thinking it is on wifi instead of 3G.
    The app is called MyWi (not MiWi). PDANet is another app that lets you tether your 3G connection from your phone to a computer/laptop. Since AT&T started cracking down on unauthorized tethering usage early this year (they will CHANGE YOUR PLAN TO A TETHERING PLAN) it has become more popular because of itís built in methods of masking your tethering usage to make it appear you are not tethering.
    iBlacklist is another great app that does the same thing as Mcleaner.
