Before Apple’s new iPhone 3G was launched, we had got the bad news that AT&T will not be offering tethering capabilities for iPhone 3G.
However, it doesn’t seem to have stopped iPhone hacking expert, Nate True from figuring out a way to tether jailbroken iPhone 3G to the laptop.
We have already seen some interesting hidden features in iPhone firmware 2.0 like the one we wrote about earlier today (iPhone Remote App also Acts as Wi-Fi Keyboard for Apple TV).
iPhone Atlas has just reported a couple more hidden features. Both seem to be an extension of the hidden features that we have already mentioned here at iPhone Hacks.
When I wrote about the iPhone Remote, the first official native iPhone application to be reviewed here at iPhone Hacks, I missed out one of the features which would have made Apple TV and iPhone or iPod Touch users very happy.
DaringFireball.net has revealed that the iPhone Remote adds a useful and unpublicized feature. It also acts as a Wi-Fi keyboard for Apple TV.

If you are having trouble with an iPhone application downloaded from the App Store where it opens up and immediately exits (crashes) every time you try to launch it then here are some solutions that you might want to try out to resolve the problem.
We have been expecting AT&T to roll this out ever since the fiasco couple of months where AT&T’s website had mentioned free access to more than 17,000 AT&T Wi-Fi hotspots, including Starbucks only to be rolled back within a few hours.
At that time AT&T had blamed the confusion on a human error but had told us that they were planning to provide free access to their Wi-Fi hotspots sometime in the future.
AT&T has finally announced free access to its Wi-Fi hotspots for all its iPhone customers in the US.
Update: Folks, I am sorry, the Wi-Fi is still not available, and it appears that the “document” was again a mistake.
Based on reader comments as well as news reports, it appears that some of the iPhone users who have upgraded to the latest firmware are observing sluggishness in UI, freezing, apps crashing etc while some who have just bought Apple’s new iPhone 3G are complaining that their iPhone 3G’s signal strength is not very good.
There could be relief on the way as Boy Genius (BGR) recently reported that they have noticed some interesting build numbers for the iPhone and iPhone 3G in their web server logs.
