iPhone 3G-no tethering!

No tethering for iPhone 3G

Over at iPhone Atlas they’re reporting that AT&T is not planning to offer a tethering option for the forthcoming iPhone 3G. Right now AT&T does offer the option for many of their 3G phones, which allows you to use the phone as a cellular modem on a laptop as part of a $65/month data plan. According to an AT&T spokesman, however, no such Phone-As-Modem plan will be offered for the iPhone 3G.

I certainly would have been interested in tethering, especially since the 3G iPhone will allow you to receive calls while transferring data. Given that AT&T is basically eliminating the iPhone’s special status vis-a-vis their other smartphones, bringing it into line with the BlackBerry and WM data plans, it’s a shame that they’re not willing to offer parity on the tethering side. How many of you would be willing to pay extra for 3G tethering on the iPhone?

  1. Not at the moment…I like the $30 a month… of course it would have been nicer if I could have stayed at $20, but I guess they feel they need money.
