Tethering coming to the Apple iPhone (AT&T)
Yes, this has been a circulating rumor for a long time. Tethering will come to the Apple iPhone. You don't need a jailbroken iPhone to do this. The iPhone 3GS is capable of tethering, but AT&T has now allowed customers to use this feature.
When will it come? How much will it cost? Those are the critical questions.
I've tethered using smartphones running Windows Mobile, Palm OS, and BlackBerry. I don't think I could survive without tethering because I don't carry a dedicated WWAN card. It simply doesn't make sense to pay for a separate card if I already have an Internet-capable smartphone.
