Q: My phone is listed in the working section but i still cannot tether...why?
A: This may be due to several reasons.
1. Your service provider might have blocked tethering or you might need an additional tethering plan to be able to tether.
2. You are entering the wrong APN settings
3. You are not using the correct procedure to tether.
4. Tethering for your phone broke in a later firmware and the wiki wasn't updated.
5. The phones was wrongly added to the working list.
Q: On the Archos i get 'Paired but not connected' message .. does that matter?
A: No! tethering should work as long as the phone is paired. It does not need to be connected.Direct links to tethering discussion based on firmwareFirmware 1.7.77
