How to enable iPhone 3g tethering with TPG network

Ok so you are one of the people who finally join TPG for their attractive mobile plan ?

Me too 🙂 I signed up for TPG Premium 50$ for 1000$ cap value and 500Mb per month. The only downsize is TPG does not support internet tethering ! So i use Google to find a way around to enable tether with TPG and here are some information i collected (mostly from Whirlpool). Those are only for referencing, please refer to TPG staffs for all your enquiries !

  • Tethering is the use of a mobile device such as a mobile phone to supply Internet access for another device which is otherwise unconnected, using the mobile device as amodem. This can be done through Bluetooth wireless technology or cables (such as USB). Please go to Wikipedia for more information.
  • The DATA is included in CAP plan. It means that if you use up your 500mb data, every excess kb data will be deduced from your 1000$ CAP value and if 1000$ are used up as well, prepare to meet your biggest mobile phone bill 🙂
  • The reason why TPG does not support tethering is because TPG used Optus line and Optus restricted tethering. That is why when you enable tethering, iPhone will display the message: “Please contact Optus for…” And if you do contact Optus, they will explain that you need to pay them $/month to be able to use Tethering 😦

How to do it ?

  1. Go to with your iPhone’s Safari
  2. Scroll down and select Tethering. Read Disclaimer first !
  3. Select your country
  4. Select your provider (mine is Optus)
  5. You can choose to install benm’s webclip or turn off
  6. Press Download and then choose Install profile

Web clip is the new feature of your Safari (same as bookmarks) . It will automatic create a new icon (in your home screen) based on your requested website. In this case, it will link to Benm’s website. For more information about how to create your own webclip, you can visit Ziphone.

That is all ! Now you can Enable Internet Tethering 🙂

Use it at your own risk :))
