    Yes, but you still have to install something else on your Laptop before you can hook up your iPhone to make your laptop work.

    No, once you have tethering enabled, when you plug your phone in you computer will see it as another network connection.

    This was my experience:

    (I have a 16 GB 2G iphone on tmobile)

    After much research, I downloaded PDAnet to my phone. Then all i had to do was (in MACOSX) go to "create new network" make one called iphone, connect to that network on my iphone, and that was it! PDAnet took care of everything else. It was really easy, props to those who make the program.

    Of course I only have EDGE on my phone so the netword speeds were all that fast.
