i travel frequently, and have a data plan on the local phone. problem is that it is EMOBILE in Japan and the 3G SIM/service isn't compatible. (its 1700 vs 1900/2100), and yes i've tried to put the local SIM in the iphone... it just doesn't work...
anyway i was wondering if there was a way to tether a phone to the iphone via bluetooth
typically as i understand it...
iphone -> macbook (this can be done via bluetooth, and ive done it before)
what i want to do is...
regular phone -> iphone
and on this phone i can already do
regular phone -> macbook (via bluetooth)
not sure if this makes sense, of if even anyone has this need, but was wondering if anyone has any ideas...

guys thanks for the comments...
yep i figured you can't.... and probably no one really has the need to do this...
but i figure its potentially possible?? since the bluetooth PAN can go one way, there isn't anything that says you can't go the other way right? (i should make this app.. )
but long story short, i solved my problem. i had a touch diamond, and almost bricked it, but was able to upload a new rom, and all is good through the 'wifi router' app on the winmo device.
