O2 and Vodafone examine tethering for iPhone

One of the most wanted features for the Apple iPhone, tethering, looks like it will finally arrive within the forthcoming version 3.0 software upgrade which is due to appear during this Summer. However, UK operators have still to decide how they will tackle the new facility.


Tethering, the practice of connecting the iPhone to a computer to enable the iPhone to be used as a modem, is high on Apple's priorities, "We're supporting tethering in the client side, we're building that support in. We're working with our carriers around the world," said Scott Forstall, senior vice president of iPhone software for Apple.


However, both O2 and Vodafone were unsure when or if the feature would be supported by them, "We are working with them [Apple] to ensure new features including tethering are fully supported on our network but we are not making any announcements yet," an O2 spokesperson told the Pocket-lint website.
