Apple today made a fourth beta over iPhone OS 4.0 available to developers. Early reports of new features found in the latest beta of the operating system include tethering controls that would allow the iPhone to act as a modem for laptops. Apple added the feature to iPhone OS 3.0, but it has been unavailable to-date from AT&T in the U.S. The inclusion of the tethering controls in this beta OS does not mean that AT&T plans to offer tethering as a service option at any point in the future, even though the company still insists it will eventually offer it. Other features include new wallpapers, and improved call and maps performance.

funny how a idiot phone is so popular!

that idiot phone is iphone!
windows mobile phones have been able to tether for YEARS!, and you dont need to ask ATT for permission!
...and look where Windows Mobile is right now. HTC Tilt 2 came out and almost no one buys it. Call it an idiot phone all you want, but sales prove that people prefer it over most operating systems.

Haven't had issues with tethering since I got it.

Yea the iphone is capable of offering tethering, but AT&T isn't going to just allow it...for free. lol
