Hey guys must be a stupid question for you.. but whats tethering?

tethering is the ability to hook up your iphone to your laptop and have it use your 3g connection to surf the internet on your laptop :) is very handy if your travel a lot maybe on train or bus or some ways...


so im assuming it uses up your month data plan?

i dont think you need to jailbreak for tethering anymore i have that option under network settings

right you are... BUT when you chose that option you have you pay your carrier monthly, its not free like it is when you get it from cydia ;)

oh so your carrier knows when you tether the legit way and you have to buy a special data plan? and with the jailbreak route you just use your data like its being used right off the device?

Jailbreaking gives you complete freedom to do what you want with your iPhone. Isn't that a breath of fresh air compared to a Government or Apple telling you what to do.

+1 for this. I have the same opinion.

go to the "dev-team blog" and download the latest redsnow jailbreaking tool. download verizon cdma 4.2.8 ipsw from internet or use the one downloaded by your itunes and which is already in your computer. Follow redsnow onscreen instruction to jailbreak your verizon iphone. Remember to backup your iphone via itunes before do anything about jailbreak.
