    Tethering is a relatively new term, so old-timers don't have to feel bad if it's unfamiliar. I only recently found it myself. It refers to using your smartphone as a gateway/router from the WiFi interface to your 3G ISP so that you can connect other devices to the Internet via your smartphone. Some 3G plans give generous data allowances now. You can even buy modem/routers where you insert your SIM and use it as a wireless AP to the Internet.

    So assuming the smartphone looks like a WiFi AP, it's just the same deal as getting WiFi to work in Linux, no more no less.

    Hi
    Or it's a modem, then network manager should look after it. On my BB
    it still uses wvdial and barry.

    No data cap here on EDVO

    With a blackberry that's most common - at least the older ones (like the
    8700c I just retired) didn't have wifi, but it appeared as a modem device
    if tethering was enabled and it was plugged into the USB port.

    Instead of the usual usb thingy on the laptop connecting to internet.
    Easier life.

    The hard part may be getting the "phone" to do the wireless thing, it might
    be blocked by the provider. A friend got one, how is it called...? One of
    those from Apple, quite expensive. I think it has both wifi and bluethooth,
    and both needed some serious tinkering. They asked me how to do it, but
    having never done it, I had no idea. Bluetooth is lighter on the battery,
    if the bandwidth is enough.

    I believe it's only possible if you jailbreak the iPhone. Not a problem with Android and other phones IIRC. Also connection sharing like this depends on the T&C of the ISP. It wasn't so long ago that some broadband ISPs prohibited sharing on their connection. Which was silly because people wanted to have one account per family, not for every computer in the house. And it was trivial to do with masquerading+routing. Eventually the restriction died a quiet death and pretty much everyone has a modem+AP now. I hope ISPs won't be as silly with 3G Internet accounts.

    iPhone.

    My Android phone has a wifi tether capability as well from Verizon for
    $20/month on top of the unlimited data plan. With a rooted phone, there
    are ways around that (not that I'd advocate using that as a way of not
    paying for the service, however - I'm sure Verizon has ways of telling
    based on data usage).

    OK. I have about 9hour of sleep. But only have time for just installing SuSe. I just want to get a answer on my 'What I want to know".
