    I heard something about a guy using his iPhone as a WiFi router for his laptop.
    Can you do that with a ipt2g?

    He probably meant to use the cellular connection to receive the internet, and then the wi-fi to broadcast it to the laptop, right?

    It needs to be a phone first off, which the iPod touch isn't.

    Maybe to use the internet on an older laptop that doesn't have built in Wi-Fi by tethering the iPod Touch that can recieve the Wi-Fi to the laptop in order to use the iPod as a sort of USB wireless adapter so that your laptop without built in wi-fi can use it.

    well, basically it uses your iPhone data and it distributes it out like a router to devices with a certain program installed. i've tried it once, and surprisingly, its not bad.
