The allure of having mobile internet access wherever you go is hard to resist. This was evident when Steven Troughton-Smith accidentally activated the tethering feature on his iPhone updated to iOS 3.0, prompting others to explore how to enable this feature themselves.

Numerous blog posts and discussions on platforms like the MacRumors forums detail successful attempts to enable tethering, complete with a step-by-step guide and a specific IPCC file for UK users.

However, it’s important to note that tethering, especially without a supporting carrier plan, can lead to significant risks such as hefty data charges, the potential cancellation of your service, or other less likely but humorous consequences. While jailbroken phones have historically tethered without many issues, past results may not guarantee future safety.
