iPhone OS 3.1.3 has been released, and it may be possible to use tethering with Telecom again now. According to a post on MacRumours, a user in Germany is successfully tethering using O2 (the only official carrier in Germany is T-Mobile). Can a Telecom user please give it a go? :)

I've found a few more references to this online. Apparently if there's no carrier bundle present then the default is now to allow tethering once you enter the APN etc. I don't know what will happen if you're using the custom Telecom carrier bundles that have been making the rounds.

In either case, I don't actually own an iPhone so I can't test this myself, but I still know potentially good news when I see it :)

Edit: Confirmed working with an unapproved operator in Sweden too. Can someone please try it on XT?

It doesn't work with the current custom carrier bundle for XT. I will restore my iPhone and test to see if the new standard non-carrier ipcc enables it. If it does then we may need to update the bundles.

We'll know for sure later but in the meantime has anyone got a 3G on 3.1.3 that is jailbroken that can send the carrier bundles to me? They are stored within the iPhone's files system

The impression I got from what I've read indicated that a custom bundle will prevent tethering from working. I've seen a couple more success stories from Italy and Belgium, and from what I can tell there were no third-party carrier bundles present. One user was unable to get it to work, but that may have been user error.

UPDATE: Tethering is back for non-official carriers!

I have just restored and tethering works with XT, you cannot use the carrier bundle though.

Once we work out what the differences are in the bundles we will update them and all will work.

SO..... To enable Tethering on XT you need to restore and do not install our bundle.

Hmm, I'll watch this closely, my 2G is starting to get poor battery life so that 3GS might be on the horizon.


Will be great if this works once more!

Just need someone to PM me the original 3.1.3 Carrier Bundle files from their iPhone 3G and then we can start working on fixing the our custom bundles.

www.unlockit.co.nz... now works with the 3.1.3 (XT and 2Degrees) setting the correct APN.

Unfortuately companies who are MNVO with Vodafone as you can't turn tethering on yet as it sees it as a Vodafone SIM and turns off the Tethering as it can't connect to the vodafone APN (and you can't change it)

Great.. I've seen the same solution in a number of places now on the internet for various carriers.. Unfortunately I have 3GS which is not jailbreakable under 3.1.3 or I would have been able to help sooner with a solution :-)
