mac address is assigned to your iPhone can't be changed
its hardware dependent you would need to change the hardware.

or are you asking about the IP address ?

Yeah I knew it has to do with the hardware but its just a series of hex #'s;
There are programs to do it on a pc or mac, so u know its not the ip I wanna
change. I read on some website (which I can't find) of a guy who sshed into his iPhone and was able to change its mac address. I tried using Mobile Terminal using this code '& sudo ifconfig en1 (desired mac address)' but nothing. So anyone has any more ideas.......

I remember having problems in BSD over this a long time ago. Have you tried using ifconfig JIC?

[added later] Nope - was worth a try though, stranger things have happened.

On some *nix setups you can just do

ifconfig [interface] ether 01:02:03:04:05:06

to set your mac address to 01:02:03:04:05:06 until the next reboot of course.

I try this (with en0 as the interface) on my iPhone and it looses my terminal so it looks like something's changing.

you could spoof your mac address in cydia with mac spoof something like that
