iPhone Modem steps into NetShare’s tethering void

With NetShare hog slaughtered in the plastic tub of rejected iPhone apps and no AT&T supported tethering in sight, there’s plenty of people jonesing for a way to use their “unlimited” iPhone 3G connection for a pub counter Uldaman run.

The latest app to try to step into the tetherting void is iPhone Modem by Addition Software. Apple hasn’t gotten back to them with approval for official App Store release (Song cue: “Going through the motions”) so they are releasing through the Cydia package management application (Jailbroken iPhone required, natch), although they still want $10.

Most impressive: iPhone Modem claims a painless 10 second tethering time.

    If I wanted to jailbreak my phone to get tethering, I’d just set up an ad hoc network, get OpenSSH going, and go. Why do I need to pay $10?
