Tether iPhone for free wireless access anywhere
We assumed the novelty of the Apple iPhone would have worn off by now. We were wrong. It could get better than TapTapRevolution and Shazam.
Almost two years since its launch, this little brick of wonderful continues to wow. Even with the AppStore, the iPhone is most utilitarian when it is Jailbroken. So, if your phone is factory stock, go here before you try Tethering.
Need to access the internet beyond WiFi? Got an Excel doc that needs a laptop toggle? This tutorial turns your iPhone into a wireless modem for your computer. Sound Greek? Well, it allows you to go online with your laptop by tethering to the iPhone's 3G or Edge network cellular signal. The connection is slow (think 56K), but it'll get you enough juice to send out emails or download an attachment. Bonus: it is free.
Thanks to Alex at Neatorama for the heads up!
