AT&T: No iPhone Tethering Launch Date Yet

AT&T may have lifted its block on using services like Skype on its wireless network, but that doesn't mean the company is ready to let iPhone owners use its tethering service. AT&T confirmed it is still working on letting iPhone owners share their wireless Internet connection with their computer, but isn't ready to flip the switch yet, according to the Wall Street Journal.

"For tethering, we need to do some additional fine tuning to our systems and networks so that we do deliver a great experience," an AT&T spokesperson said.

Apple included tethering support in iPhone OS 3.0, but AT&T hasn't yet implemented the feature. The company also left iPhone owners waiting for about three months before enabling MMS messaging, another feature included in iPhone OS 3.0.

AT&T is remaining tight-lipped about when it may finally enable tethering for iPhone owners and for now is sticking with its "We're working on it" position.
