    So AT&T has specifically stated that this isn;t allowed. My question is, can they detect it? Or is it just going to show up as bandwidth to them. I am thinking the answer is the latter, but I would rather not find out with a $500 bill.

    I once prayed to God for an iPhone, but quickly found out He didn't work that way...so I stole an iPhone and prayed for His forgiveness.

    I'm trying to install iphonemodem on my jailbroken 2.1 3g phone, but I keep getting a "Source Error: NetDB: apt.modmyi.com nodename nor servname provided, or not known."

    Is this to do with the domain name change here?

    Update: the source needed upgrading. Problem solved!

    hbelkins, try quickpwn. It's the just about the same thing as ZiPhone... maybe even easier...
    QuickPwn worked like a charm, thanks!

    I'll try iPhone modem out tomorrow when I am trying to get online away from home. But unfortunately I see no SOCKS proxy options for Yahoo messenger and Eudora, two apps I use frequently. :-(

    Well, it's not going to show up saying "TETHERED DATA USAGE: xxxxKB" but you do have to be intelligent about it. There is only so much you can legitimately download over a small period of time on a mobile device which isn't supposed to allow direct file downloading. I have no idea what the limit is before ATT can legally decide that you are violating your contract by tethering, but I do know that they can charge you for the full price of all of the data usage, with additional fees, as well as immediate termination of your contract. That is, if they catch you.

    Anyways, this is why it says in the original post to be smart - don't be torrenting the first season of Heroes over this connection. Just for that emergency situation where there's no wifi for your laptop and you need to connect (or you're just hella bored in the middle of class, lol). Or when your ISP is down for a day or two and you really need to check your email and read the latest MMi update

    The limit for "unlimited" is 5GB for a month but that doesn't mean that AT&T won't investigate if you've actually download 1GB within 5 hours. I've been an AT&T data plan customer since 2005 and have been using tethering with a number of phones since then. AT&T hasn't raised a red flag yet but then again, I don't think I've gone over 5GB. The most that I've downloaded on a single go was about 700mb via usenet when I was out of town.

    Okay, someone needs to help you with your english... are you saying you are going to release a similar app for free? If so please tell me you are not going to name it iPhoneModem.

    Hi,
    since this whole thread seems to cause a lot of confusion to all of us - here are the key facts:
    1. there is a free app called iPhoneModem.
      It is maitained by Markoxyz and it existed under this name
      long before the paid version appeared.
      You can download it from iPhoneModem, Internet für Mac und iPhone
    2. The paid iPhoneModem has many design flaws:
      • It uses unencrypted ad-hoc networks
      • Your tether can be discovered and used by any mac user
        smart enough to hook into your open wlan net
      • It doesn't background when run on your iPhone

    So PLEASE DON'T BUY IT!
    Wait for the free iPhoneModem to appear on the MMi repository. It uses zsrelay as it's background daemon. This allows you to run a tether and use your iPhone for your all day tasks.
    It even has integrated network keep alive (similar to insomnia). So in case you don't want to use your phone while tethering you can at least lock it.

    While I'm at this - zsrelay is looking for volunteers to test out future releases and betas.
    If you're interested just send me an email or drop a PM.

    P.S. Did I mention it is cross-fw e.g. works on 1.1.x AND 2.X?
    Cheers,
    Shirk
