Enable Tethering

Unlocking the Tethering your iPhone 3G and 3GS:

Step 1: Once you are done with the jailbreak and unlock, start Safari web browser on your iPhone and navigate to:

Step 2: Scroll down to where it says “Mobileconfigs – download >”
Choose your country, and then your service provider.

Step 3: Safari will now prompt you to install an unsigned Tethering .IPCC file on your iPhone. Allow the file to install by touching on install button.

Step 4: Now reboot your iPhone by first holding down the “Home” button, followed by “Power” button simultaneously until you see Apple logo on the screen.

Step 5: Once your phone has been restarted, simply navigate to
Settings->General->Network->Internet Tethering
on your iPhone and turn on the toggle for Internet Tethering.

    If you install Blackra1n (succesfully) download packages Cydia and Snow. Snow will enable tethering as long as the tethering mobile configuration profile is installed.

    I’m using an iPhone 3G (8Gb) w/ 3.1.2 and blackra1n RC3. I did a fresh 3.1.2 restore on my phone. Then I installed blackra1n. The tethering option would come up but when I would plug my phone to the computer, it would disappear. So I installed sn0w and then a profile configuration. Rebooted my phone and boom! I have tethering. I’m surfing the web on my computer via the phone. Everything is happy until now.

    I’m surfing the web, watching Youtube videos, etc. On the bottom of my screen I get a message saying that the cable has been disconnected. I look at my phone and in the top left corner it says No Service. I wait for a few seconds and I get connection again and I continue surfing. At a random point, my phone does the No Service crap again. It seems to do it randomly and it even does it when I’m not tethering. Any ideas?

    Will this not have the same problem as MyWi or what ever? Where if AT&T sees that you are tethering they will start charging you for tethering and before you know it you have close to a 1000 dollar bill?
