No Tethering for iPhone 3G

Illustration for article titled No Tethering for iPhone 3G

We suspected this when Apple didn't mention tethering and AT&T told us after repeated prodding that all device features were up to the manufacturer-i.e., the tethering ball is in Apple's court-but iPhone Atlas says they've learned that there won't be any tethering for the iPhone 3G.

As we mention in our ultimate iPhone 3G FAQ, written by the esteemed author of How to Do Everything With Your iPhone, they didn't allow tethering with the first iPhone either (not that EDGE would've been a wild ride anyway). This just seems to make it more of a lock-at least without some hackage. If Apple winds up allowing tethering, AT&T will probably come up with a plan, or simply apply its standard smartphone tethering plan, but either way, we'll let you know if we hear different.

DISCUSSION

Do not question perfection, people. The iPhone has every feature known to any species anywhere in the universe. Why would someone want to insult the Creator by using another device? Would you take a Koran to Catholic school? Would you drink a Coca-Cola in a Pepsi distribution center? The feature is not there because perfection deems it unnecessary. Anyone who says otherwise is blasphemous and should be forced to swim in their own feces.
