ABSTRACT
The article offers information on tethering, the ability to share a cellular phone's EDGE or 3G connection with a computer via Bluetooth, USB, or Wi-Fi, which is missing on Apple Inc.'s iPhone. Using a phone that supports tethering, one can get one's computer onto the Internet where there is a cellular signal. Both Apple and AT&T may have hesitated to bring it to the iPhone until now as keeping Bluetooth or Wi-Fi turned on and transmitting data over the 3G network for extended periods of time will quickly drain the phone's battery life. However, the two are now working to bring tethering to the iPhone. Apple executives said during the iPhone 3.0 special event that the upcoming version of the iPhone OS would give the device tethering capabilities.
