    Default I-phone into laptop for internet connection?

    Can anyone tell me if I can plug my iPhone into a laptop (via the USB lead) and get on the net?
    cheers

    Use iPhone as "Hot Spot". As long as iPhone has data coverage.

    Yeah, you should be able to turn the iPhone into a hotspot. Will be in the settings I'd imagine, haven't used one for a long time so can't tell you exactly how to do it

    Just turn the wifi on, click on the icon down the bottom right and open the wireless centre or whatever it's called. Then just pick it and put in your password. It will remember it after the first time, so anytime you turn it back or its within range, it will reconnect automatically
