    Default iPhone used as Modem?
    Before I got my iPhone I was with Sprint and had a Samsung A900. I had it setup so that my data collector(I am a surveyor) could connect to my A900 through bluetooth and use it as a modem dailing #777 on the A900. It would basically give my data collector access to the internet. The data collector is a big PPC, so it was running WM5, just email the data and we are good to go.

    Question is, can this be done on the iPhone somehow?




    Thanks

    well you can tether your iphone to your computer. I Dont know if it is 100% yet. But i know there is a risk of at&t finding out and cancel you service.

    What do you mean by tether? is it something that only a PC can do? Or does it have the ability to go on mobile devices? Do you have a link?


    Thanks

    So far, I believe, that the tether is a proxy server that runs on the iPhone, and what this does is allow you to connect to the iPhone via WiFi, inorder to use the edge network. So if your portable device can use WiFi then yes you can tether it.

    Although it would be interesting if the connection could be used over bluetooth but i don't know if this is really possible or not.

    Check the News forum, there is a guide on tethering there. Tethering is what you are describing.
