    Is there any simple way to block SMS / calls while wirelessly tethering? I tend to game while I tether since my AT&T home connection is literally less reliable, but a picture message means 5 seconds of lag and a call means a sure-fire disconnect. Am I able to put all messages/calls temporarily on hold somehow?

    Hmmm...does airplane mode disable wifi as well? I have a feeling it does, since its purpose is to disable all radios...

    Airplane mode would also disable 3g, making the entire point irrelevant.

    You're saying that your DSL broadband connection at home is slower than 3G?

    I forget the name of it but there is a beta version of a new rom available that has a flaw where you can't get phone calls if you have 3G turned on, short of that (which I wouldn't recommend) I have no idea how you could deactivate calls and messages while retaining tethering access.

    I'd suggest dealing with the problem rather than the symptom. Get at&t to fix it or use a better broadband provider.
