    internet off iPhone

    Has anyone had any luck tethering their iPhone in order to use edge on their carpc?
    I have seen posts about it but I have never been able to connect my iphone to the adhoc network. It doesn't even show up as a wireless network on the iphone but it does show up on my laptop.
    I am using XP. I go into wireless networks and add a new network and check the adhoc network box.
    I don't know what else I am supposed to do.

    Did you jailbreak it yet? Install the proxy application?
    Failure is not an option....



    It's installed by default on every version of Windows.

    Will proxy application work with T-zones?

    What is the name of the proxy you're using?

    if you have it unlocked and have the installer apllication installed go to the tweaks 1.1.3 catagory and install the T-mobile 1.1.3 tzones proxy hack this will allow you to have full internet(minus you tube and itunes store) on your phone. im also looking into having the iphone run as a internet modem.

    Got it working. I couldn't connect to the adhoc network unless I signed my laptop off my wifi first.
    Then I had to change the proxy port to 8080 not 1080 like the docs say.
    I now have very slow internet in the car!

    Slow internet is better than no internet. Sometimes...

    That's pretty great. If I can see this in action in a video or illustrated tutorial I may get an iPhone. Overall cheaper than getting a separate 50 buck a month Verizon connection...

    Here is the link that'll explain it, except instead of port 1080 you use 8080 it has windows and mac files so make sure which one you get. plus i think there is a video of someone doing it with a mac laptop

    oops looks like the tethering kit they provide dont work with the new software iphones when you jailbreak/unlock you phone youll have a installer app on your iphone screen use it and update if it asks to. then go to the network catagory and install a prog called tinyproxy. after that follow the tutorial again except dont use the tether package they have, just from setting up the adhoc network
