USB Tethering With iPhone

tethered iphone usb

USB tethering is a nickname for getting internet access for a computer through a cell phone.  Well, it seems the iPhone 3.0 beta software will have that feature and a programmer has [currently] figured it out.

Scott Forstall, Apple’s Senior VP of iPhone Software, stated on Tuesday that the feature is now built into the OS, but carriers will have to choose whether to take on all that extra network burden and allow access. As developers continue to tinker with the iPhone OS 3.0 beta, though, one has unlocked access to iPhone tethering and taken it for a spin.

An iPhone developer, Steve Troughton, was tinkering around with a couriers itcc file [network access files] and managed to get his iPhone tethered.

The ability to tether an iPhone is not a technical challenge; it’s a network challenge. Computers can haul far more data down a connection than a cell phone, and many carriers are simply not ready to provide that large of a wireless pipe to 17 million iPhone owners.
