We’ll state this from the jump: the method described in this post is not for the faint of heart, and may lead to AT&T charging you for excessive data usage and/or terminating your account due to unauthorized usage. Still interested? Read on. iPhone warrior Nate True has devised a way to tether your iPhone 3G to your Apple laptop. The process involves a homebrew collection of software and hardware hacks, and ultimately allows your computer to see your iPhone as a modem thanks to a combination of 3proxy, Terminal, and Wi-Fi. This is an imperfect solution, and involves a conscious rebellion against AT&T’s terms of service, but while we wait for an official solution from AT&T and Apple this is, for the time being, the next best thing.
