my phone is now rooted and i can wifi tether thanks to the folks over at droidforums.net! i have a freaking router in my pocket! and the amazing moment? now let me preface that this is not a knock against the iphone but a knock against at&t (well maybe to the iphone users for accepting horrid data connections). i work at a small retail store in nyc. i was at the front of the store by the cash registers... two people were downstairs (75ft away and 15ft down... approx)... they were both connected to my phone via wifi tether and both getting 200kb/s down. why is this cool? because they have no service in the basement! may i also point out that i tested the opposite as in i was downstairs with a full 3G and somebody at the back of the store upstairs was connected to me.
