Hi all

Like a lot of other iPhone 3G owners, I am suffering from the loss of internet tethering after upgrading to OS 4.2.1:

http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?threadID=2657841&start=0&tstart=0

I'm using Telecom XT prepaid. Funnily enough, while currently in Australia tethering works fine using a SIM for Telstra's Next G network, so I'm assuming it's something to do with the carrier settings? I don't have any "profiles" to delete which is one of the suggested fixes.

 At the moment I'm planning on rolling back to 4.1 which would be a drag... If anyone has any advice on this issue or has solved it I'd love to know!

Cheers

Yes this has been discussed before on Geekzone and you are correct - no tethering is available on non approved carriers on 4.2.1 on the iphone 3g (3gs and 4 are both fine with this firmware)

There is no fix other than to jailbreak and use a 3rd party tethering solution or restore an older version of the firmware.

Thanks for the confirmation. I had a search but couldn't find the previous discussion, apologies. I don't suppose there is any likelihood of Telecom being able to come to an agreement with Apple on this :(?

99.99999999% unlikely. Telecom don't sell the iPhone, Apple couldn't care less what Telecom think. Apple does what Apple wants.
