iPhone 3.0: Internet tethering & MMS: Hurrah, but read the small print

Although both the above are part of the iPhone 3.0 update, you read the small print and it talks about dependence on local carriers and you just know that you'll be one of the unlucky few whose carrier won't support this.

But those of us on O2 (at least on pay monthly) in the UK need fear not. The new iPhone 3Gs and 3.0 update page has links for tethering and MMS and both say that we'll get it. In fact, it appears once you've downloaded 3.0, O2 will set up MMS for you automatically. You get MMS on PAYG too you lucky people.

The bad news is, to get tethering you've got to pay for a bolt on and that's a minimum of £14.68 a month which frankly is a bit stingy when you're already paying £35 a month. Bah.
