The new iPhone OS 3.0 was released today, but was installed by many users last week thanks to the torrent leak of the iPhone OS 3.0 Golden Master. The new firmware is great, and offers many excellent new features.
The problem is, however, that due to AT&T’s incompetence, internet tethering and MMS messaging will not be available to 3.0 users until the end of the summer at best. The reason that tethering is delayed is because AT&T is still trying to form some kind of a pricing plan (to maximize the amount of money they rob from you.)
Allegedly, the pricing plan we’re most likely to end up with is $70/month for unlimited tethering. Something tells me only 7 people in all of America would actually pay $70/month for tethering. Hopefully AT&T will realize that.
All that aside, someone has created an amazing way to activate internet tethering on your iPhone 3.0, today!

- AT&T could be charging you. Nobody knows.
- Do this at your own risk.
