    Here is a blog from download.com about a freeware called JoikuSpot, that enables certain 3G phones to give your laptop internet on the go, or, wherever. You would use the 3G service as your internet. IF, and WHEN the 3G iphone comes out, this would be a great idea.

    I might get the 3G iPhone so this is quite amazing. Use your iPhone for internet? This is for me. All you need is to have your iPhone plugged in to charge all night though because 3G drains battery very quickly.

    really thats awesome!

    but would it have to change for the iphone being 3G instead of edge or would it be just as easy?
    probably not much different knowing both iphones are very identical

    wait, if u could wirelessly connect to ur iphone, that means ur laptop already has a wifi card, so why would u need an iphone?

    and is it possible to get internet to a computer that doesnt have a wifi card with an ipod or iphone thru the cable?

    wouldnt you just have your iphone plugged into your laptop, and it would charge off of the laptops battery ?, im sure it would last longer that way.

    The touch doesn't have Edge/3G so...uh, no? If you could connect to the net on your touch and you have a wireless-enabled laptop next to you, you should be able to connect to the internet on your laptop...
