The steps listed are how to tether iPhone using wifi, not usb. To connect via usb, you have to install pdanet desktop http://www.junefabrics.com/desktop/ and have iTunes running in the background.
Thanks to member Mazdachuck, who posted it in this thread, for this information.
PdaNet is definitely the way to go (as a couple of posters have suggested). Here's how to get it all working:
Follow this guide to Jailbreak your phone: http://www.iclarified.com/entry/index.php?enid=1881
Launch Cydia and search for "PdaNet" and install it on your iPhone
Create an ad-hoc network on your PC/Mac using this guide: http://www.junefabrics.com/iphone/faq.php#wifipc
Join your newly created ad-hoc network with your iPhone
Browse the web with your Carputer
I used this exact process (with a few Google searching in between) yesterday and it works great. PdaNet now works with Wifi (Apple/PC) and USB (PC) tethering.
Will this show up on AT&T as me tethering my phone? Because they charge an extra $20-30 for that and I haven't signed up for that yet.....
It currently wont show up as anything but data usage, but if ATT thinks that you are using it as a modem they will slap you with huge fees. There is no current tethering plan for the iphone.
Cant code cause I dont know how, but give me the paint bucket and my eraser and have at you!
so if I get the unlimited data plan on my samsung black jack phone which I use windows mobile, I would be able to use as a modem with out them ever knowing? $60 a month is pushing, im not in my car a lot. So Im looking for something other then wifi
thankyou for posting this I just got the i phone jailbroke it and am in the process of setting this up.
Just remember that if you are with o2 (UK) then there is a 200Mb allowance on the unlimited internet with the iPhone so browing is fine but just dont go download crazy
For those who used this wifi method, how's the battery life on the iphone?
I heard that even when the phone is plugged to a wall charger, the power draw would still suck your battery.
Anyone using usb here?
