  1. One of these days I’ll catch up with you guys to add some input. On the telstra tethering issue,
    we can’t even do it here in the states with AT&T, which is the only carrier to support the iphone.
    They say it might be before the end of the year before we see it. I think they are trying to hold on to their profits with their own tethering device.
    As you can see from the link below that there is no support for a apple iPhone.
    Their phone service sucks as well. I tell people all the time, I love my 1st gen iphone, it does everything well except…., be a phone.

  2. Yeh that sucks Ajay,
    We still have a method left open for tethering but it looks like a new carrier setting is about to close that off on the iPhone.
    We will catch you on the Skype one day, time zones make it difficult but we will go late if you get going early.
