This is cool shit... teathering from my 3gs to my laptop via bluetooth.

Not as slow as I expected either!

Have you installed 3.1???

It is supposed to eliminate that option. I haven't upgraded to 3.1 because of this neither has my GF - we are looking for somebody to try it before we do.

I don't tether very often, but it's nice to know it's there if I need it.

Right now its not offered threw ATT but when it comes out it will be 60 bucks a month to have tethering legally.

Otherwise the hack is free...

There is no app. Just install the profile/software from benm site. reboot phone.

Go to settings, general, network, turn on tethering.. plug it into your laptop/computer and let it install its software, should just be a minute or 2 and it will automatically come on...

yup it works well, but it did break visual voicemail... I would download it and install the carrier file when I needed tethering and then reset network settings after.
