you CAN do wireless tethering with the iPhone -- I've been doing it for a couple months, with good results (airports, hotels, mobile). 3G speeds are fine for most apps.


I hate to interrupt your iPhone bashing, but iPhone tethering is a: legal, and b: can be done without a USB connection. I go to my settings, turn on WiFi hotspot, and I can use my iPhone as a WiFi hotspot for up to five devices. No USB required.

You are right, of course. I am sometimes thinking in the past; however, Verizon allows WiFi Hotspot on all its smart phones. iPhone didn't always have that luxury, and you had to jailbreak the phone to do it with AT&T. I don't know if AT&T still blocks wireless tethering; but, I am sure some of you know?
