How to Tether an iPhone to a Laptop Using PdaNet Software

Apple officially does not allow the tethering of an iPhone to a Laptop or PC so the laptop can use the 3G connection for connecting to the Internet. Fortunately, you can get around this restriction by "jailbreaking" your phone and installing the PdaNet app. Here's the step-by-step process for tethering an iPhone to a laptop.
Step 1: Have a Jailbroken iPhone with iOS 3.1 or later. Mine happens to be 3.1.3
Step 2: Use the Cydia app on your phone ot download an app called "PdaNet". Just do a search for it.
Step 3: You can either tether between your phone and laptop using wifi or through the USB cable. I find the USB option to be a bit faster personally and is less susceptible to problems. You do need software to run on your Mac or PC however. You can download the PdaNet client software for Windows, or Mac OS X here:
Step 4: Connect your iPhone to your PC or MAC using the iPhone USB cable.
Step 5: Launch the PdaNet app on your iPhone. Go into the "Settings" section and check the "USB Mode" setting.
Step 6: On your Mac or PC, launch the PdaNet client application and choose "Connect". It will take a few seconds but your iPhone screen should eventually display "Connected" and begin counting the KB in and out.
You will now be connected and can use your laptop to surf the web, check email and even VPN.
Keep in mind that PdaNet is only free for 14 days. After that point the free edition will "start blocking secure web sites (web sites that require login)". You can upgrade to the paid version with a $29 PayPal payment.
That's all there is to it. You can now use your tethered iPhone to laptop Internet connection anywhere you have Edge or 3G coverage.

Itching to Break Your Cell Phone Automatically? We Have Found the Greatest Three Websites to Do It

Hi There - For today's update I'd like to offer a review of what are, in my educated opinion, the Greatest 3 Unlocking Software applications on the Internet. All of these applications will unlock your cellular phone or device pretty much on its own. You just install it. If you're planning to jailbreak an electronic device, do not attempt to become a hacker and do it by yourself. Grab one of these applications and get the job done in five minutes flat. So in descending rank of best to worst, the following are my picks...
1)Automatic iPhone Unlocker
You truly must check out this software package to appreciate it. I myself have personally downloaded it on around 30 cellular phones and iPads for my friends, acquaintances and family. After you download and install the software application, the jailbreak takes around 6.5 minutes from start to finish. You just hit the "start" button and go open a drink while the software program jailbreaks the device. The app also does a total unlock of the device. Some of the other applications that I've tried don't. Just to explain it, a complete jailbreak infers that you will be able to use your Apple phone on carriers other than Sprint. An unsuccessful jailbreak will let you install 3rd party apps, but doesn't hack the SIM at all. They will only take Paypal, and that can be a pain, but it will let the user be assured that they're supported and dealing with an honest vendor. Their user service, tech support, and the inclusive directions get a stellar grade. The price was also reasonable. This software is the creme de la creme. Overall, 9/10 rating.
2)Jailbreak Unlocker
Additionally another software application that I've tried recently. Good software application overall. The total hack procedure (following the download) was completed in about 11 minutes, which is not that terrible. The site also takes Paypal. My greatest complaint was that they only offer an incomplete unlock. This is satisfactory if you are hacking a non-Apple device, or if you are happy using your Apple phone on T-Mobile. The price is a touch lower as a result, so if you simply want to jailbreak your device and don't necessarily care about using the device on another provider, or if you are using a non-Apple phone, they're a really great choice. Like my #1 option, the directions were very easy to understand. Another complaint, though, was that the site did not offer a customer service number. Just an email was given. Overall Rating: 7/10.
3) Global iPhone Unlock
This app is acceptable, but I wasn't greatly impressed with it. The application does do a full jailbreak, and the site is totally trustworthy, unlike some companies out there. That's about the only thing that I can say for the company, however. They say that their program will permit you to hack a device in no more than 5 minutes. But it took me about 30 minutes and a couple of calls to tech support to get it done - mainly due to the fact that the directions sucked. The program was a bit more costly than the top choices were as well. The site also had a few upgrades that they try to foist on you. Tech support was acceptable. They offered a phone number instead of only an email address, but it was in India and the representative's instructions were quite difficult to comprehend. Overall rating 5/10.
That's it for today. Thanks once again for reading. See you next time!
