    my buddy has an iphone...and i have an ipod touch...and i just got the idea of would it be possible to create an app, that piggybacks onto the iphones wifi then uses it as a wireless hotspot?

    When the Bluetooth is unlocked I can see this being doable.

    you can use wi-fi and create a ad-hoc network, but the ipod touch's wi-fi doesn't support dual-band, so it's not possible

    EDIT: nvm didn't see you trying to upload the 3g signal, that is possible

    If you have an IPhone, then why do you need wifi on your IPod?

    That'd be pretty awesome, but none of my friends own an iPhone.
