“UPDATE 6/17/09: Since 3.0 is out to the public now, people are actually starting to use this. However, in the final iTunes, before using iPhoneTether, you will have to run the Terminal command “defaults write com.apple.iTunes carrier-testing -bool TRUE”. I will release a new version of iPhoneTether shortly that does this automagically for you. Also, a few days ago, I updated iPhoneTether to a new version that has an “Other IPCC…” button to allow you to specify your own carrier file. Good luck, and spread the word!
UPDATE 2: iPhoneTether has been updated to 1.1 with full compatability for iTunes 8.2 and 3.0 final, no Terminal hackery needed.”
If the first method is not working for you, try this method, MAC ONLY. I hope it works for all of you.
UPDATE #3 Video has been finally added
Try this method, no iTunes needed, this method is the easiest.
Go to this website on your iPhone safari.
1. I started off with a clean 3.0 firmware installation, which by default asks you to visit your service provider’s website to enable tethering. Bad times.
2. (SKIP THIS STEP IF YOU’VE ALREADY INSTALLED A PROFILE USING http://help.benm.at/ ) Now, if you have manually downloaded the MobileConfig file, email it to yourself so that you can open it as an attachment in the Mail app:
3. With the new profile installed, you can now turn on tethering in Settings -> General -> Network -> Internet Tethering:
Your iPhone should be beautifully glowing blue as well:

You need to have Family Unlimited Text Plan and you can just follow Step #2. Totally forgot I didn’t have Unlimited Family text Plan. I guess thats why its working for you. Again, Thanks, Let us know if it works for you without Family Unlimited Text plan. Thanks.
Another fast way mentioned by JR, is to Put your Sim in another phone, like I said. Then add the $5 text plan to your line, not the iPhone Text Plan, then put the sim back in the iPhone and restart. But remember not to put back the iPhone Text Plan.
So either have Family Unlimited Text Plan or non iPhone $5 text plan.
Hope that helps.
It still works! 😀 😀 (BTW the pic is a pic of a kernel panic haha)
