Ok, so I live out in the country, and use my phone for internet on my computer everyday. I just got a iphone 5, and I will have to jail break it apparently so I can tether it to my PC and use the internet from the phone. I will use PDANET for this, since no other program is avalible I do not think. I am a total noob here. How can i go about jailbreaking my iphone 5, which will have IOS6 on it, and install Cyndia ? Can someone help me out with step by step here, and let me know if there is a easier way to do all this. Is there a way not to jailbreak so that I can still tether my phone to my computer?

Thanks so much, sorry for being a noob, but got to start somewhere!

so, ATM i have verizon unlimited, there is no way, without tethering, to tether my iphone 5 to PC?

Yup there is. Pay Verizon for a tethering plan.

Every once in a while a tethering app slips into the AppStore. If you're lucky, you grab those.

There is also, some sort of service tat allows tethering on non jailbroken phones, but I don't know all the details, i've never tried it.

You can't. There's no iPhone 5 jailbreak yet.

We don't know.

Has anyone used the thing, through HTML?

(06 Jan '13, 02:20) thrgk thrgk's gravatar image

That article is a scam. Don't believe news you see on the Internet from unknown sources. Stick to following the jailbreak hackers on twitter or their blog.
