iPhone Operating System 3.0

The much anticipated announcement of the new iPhone and its new operating system today has already shocked many.

I am a Apple fan and was looking forward to upgrading my original iPhone to the new version, expecting to finally have the ability to hook it up to my laptop and use it to connect to the internet (tethering).  This was the big announcement at MacWorld in January.

Upon reading the fine print, disappointment set in…

Tethering is not currently offered in the U.S. and some other countries. See your carrier for availability.

That’s right, not available.  The iPhone meets all of my needs with, especially with the new features found in the iPhone 3s.  For us junkies, we would finally get copy/paste, voice recording, video capabilities, MMS, voice activated controls and tethering (except in the US).  Everything the iPhone has been missing.

The tethering leaves me questioning more whether or not it is time to go back to Verizon?  It does have better coverage in the Upstate and I can tether a Blackberry to the laptop for connectivity while traveling.  Decisions, decisions.

So are the rumors true, will the iPhone be moving to Verizon?
