I had another issue with my AT&T account. Like many I talk to or hear on podcasts, I repeatedly have to call AT&T due to billing issues, features not working and various other issues I have encountered.
The good news is that we are getting tethering for our iPhones in the near future. The bad news is that we will most likely have to add $30 to the already high price per month we pay for our iPhones. This will probably just force the tech savvy to use their jailbroken tethering methods instead of paying the same as they already pay for their iphone data plan. You also could just get a new 3G enabled laptop which incorporates a sim card tray.
