Say sayonara to tethering with Windows Phone 7
posted by John V. / Sep 24, 2010, 2:35 PM
Apparently a Microsoft spokesperson said that Watson misspoke during the podcast and that “Windows Phone 7 does not support tethering.” With such a strong and bold statement, now it pretty much seals the cover on the coffin for tethering. Sure there are going to be some people bummed out about it, but it's obviously not a high priority thing for Microsoft right now – but maybe down the road it'll be implemented with future updates.
why dont carriers want us doing this what does it do to them at all allowing us to access our pc's without the usb ?

because if everyone did it, it would increase the bottleneck on the system, and the carriers might not get paid for it. Android didnt "allow" it out of the gate.... until you figured out how to root the phone and achieve tethering that way. All this means is its not on the stock OS. Besides, they need to get the basics down 120% before doing everything else. They have a lot of negative perceptions they need to work off, and the worst thing they can do is release an OS with tons of options again, but is buggy and crash-tastic like windows 6.5. Solid foundation first, then add to it.
