Easier iPhone tethering on AT&T

Easier iPhone tethering for AT&T customers

Yesterday I closed my Sprint Mobile Broadband account. Right now, I’m writing this post in a coffee shop in Washington DC. I’m not on wi-fi because I’m tethered to my AT&T 3G Internet connection through my new iPhone 3GS.

This isn’t exactly new, but it just got a lot easier. If you don’t want to do anything remotely complicated like making an SSH terminal connection to your iPhone, restarting iTunes, pressing a combination of buttons or selecting downloaded files, this is for you.

Approximate time: 1 minute

The Mobiler recently revealed a slightly more complicated process to achieve the same result, so there are plenty of folks already happily tethered using a similar configuration. BENM.AT has created a simple mobileconfigs setup process to get you up and running in about a minute.

  1. From your iPhone, visit help.benm.at
  2. Scroll down to Mobileconfigs and click download
  3. Select your country and carrier, then click Install

OK, you’re done. Just go to Settings > General > Network and you’ll see a shiny new Internet Tethering option that you can enable. I’m running it through USB right now (to keep my iPhone 3GS fully charged), but there’s also a bluetooth option.

Please note, tethering is not supported by AT&T. Enable this on your iPhone at your own risk!

    I’m unable to connect my phone to my computer. Why’s that?
