I'm VERY impressed with the tethering capabilities, speed is actually REALLY good and I barely notice a difference between my cable internet and iPhone. Just light web browsing/e-mail.

Very easy to set up using USB haven't tried Bluetooth yet.

Well....some success and then some failure

I install 7A341 and upon initial restore I get the tethering option.

But when I go to restore...contacts etc. The tethering option is no longer there.

I've done this a few times.

I'm tethered now on usb and it works well. I can't get bluetooth to work though.

For a limited time, if you subscribe to a data option which includes at least 1GB of data transmission between June 8, 2009 and December 31, 2009, you may use tethering as part of the volume of data included in your option at no additional charge.
Er... what the hell happens as far as cost after this year for tethering??

Does anyone know I to tether on Windows XP via USB? Is iTunes required?

It works fine on my Mac, but at my girlfriends I'm having a hard time getting it to work on XP w/ no iTunes.

She doesn't have internet at her place, hence why I want to tether.

I can't see why it would require iTunes to be installed. When I was testing it last night iTunes was shut down. I did have to set it up as a new network though... perhaps that's her issue?
