Linux tethering

I was hoping to be able to tether to my Linux netbook, but it seems you need iTunes for the tethering to work.

A little disappointing, I don't want to pay for mobile internet *and* a phone with the exact same service.

You don't need itunes for tethering to work, if your carrier hasn't enabled tethering then there are hacked carrier files floating around the internet that you can (or at least could up until a late beta) of itunes import which would then enabled tethering on the phone, from then on it is just a normal bluetooth network connection, no itunes required.

As well as using itunes I also believe there is a site which you can visit on your phone which will let you download hacked carrier files.

The alternative it to go through the proper channels with your network to enable tethering (hope they don't suck like O2)
