    Default What is Tethering?

    Sorry for what might be a dumb question, but I see mention of "Tethered Jailbreak/unlock", "Internet tethering", can someone please explain what this means exactly and its implications.

    Thanks

    Tethering means:

    - use your iphone data service (3G or EDGE) to let you access the internet on your computer. In this case, your iphone as like your adsl/cable modem at home. Connection from iphone to computer is via usb cable or bluetooth. Note: bluetooth works on MAC

    Tethered Jailbreak means:

    - to jailbreak the phone but it cannot boot up on its own after jailbreak, therefore the iphone must be connected to a computer via cable (in this case) to run a program to kick it to boot.
    This applies to newer iphone 3GS and itouch 3rd gen with new bootrom.

    Thanks dtube.

    That was very informative. Is there a link with a tutorial on how to get iPhone Internet tethering to setup/work?
