    Umm, well I think your talking about tethering. When your iPhone tethers, it creates a WiFi network that other devices can connect to. You can tether your 3G connectivity and broadcast it as WiFi. I don't know why you'd want to broadcast Edge, because it's slower, but I suppose that maybe you don't get 3G where you live. Anyways, I don't know any apps that tether Edge.

    Sideish-note: You can't tether WiFi, because that'd be like taking WiFi into your phone and then broadcasting it as WiFi. There's no point/

    Correct me if I'm wrong people.

    I used MyWi on a roadtrip. It worked out in the middle of nowhere when we only had EDGE.

    You can do it by USB or Bluetooth in the settings app, or use mywi from cydia.

    He is not on 4.0 according to his sig. And because hes on 3.x he has to use a cydia app: mywi, pdanet etc.
