Getting a 3G iPhone running 3.0 to ‘tether’ to a Mac seems to depend very much on the carrier you are with. I posted earlier about a way of tethering on a none jailbroken iPhone. I have just had a look at doing it myself:
As a start point I read this article on 9to5 Mac.
As a result I downloaded this iPhone Tether file. This had the movistar es carrier included so clicked on that:
Three easy steps followed:
- Plug in your iPhone, go to iTunes, hold the option key and click on the Check For Updates NB NOT updating phone only the carrier settings doing this
- Navigate to user>Library>iTunes>iPhone Carrier Support and double click on the carrier IPCC
- On iPhone Settings >General>Network>Internet Tethering and turn that on. Note: you may need to power the iPhone on and off at this stage, I did!
Over to the Mac Book Pro, made sure the iPhone was paired with the MBP and then in the menu nar on the Bluetooth icon, right click, scroll down to the iPhone on the list, and it gives option to Connect To Network. Click on that and the iPhone comes up with a message saying Internet Tethering.
