    How to USB tether Verizon's iPhone

    I have the Verizon iPhone...
    I pay for the hotspot feature...
    I am using it on WiFi with no issue...

    Does anyone have info on how to USB TETHER the Verizon iPhone on Windows 7 x64? The iPhone is recognized, but it does not come up as a network adapter in any way, shape, or form...

    No. I have iTunes only on the Mac side, not on windows. If that is the missing link, Verizon and Apple need to put the info up somewhere.

    They do need to make it more obvious, but they have traces of documentation on their site:
    (This is a bit dated) http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3574

    For Internet tethering using a USB port, you need
    A Mac OS X computer running Mac OS X 10.5.8 or later or a computer running Windows XP Service Pack 3 or later, Windows Vista, or Windows 7, and a USB 2.0 port.
    iTunes 9.2 or later downloaded and installed on your computer.
    Note: if you downloaded iTunes 9.2 using a web browser, you may still need to install it. See this article if you experience an issue installing iTunes.
    An Apple iPhone USB cable (included with iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS).

    iTunes installed and works now. Next, uninstall iTunes and see if it still works. Will report back for the benefit of the community.
