    Hi,

    Just got a 32GB iPhone last week after 10 years of Nokia use and therefore a total newbie to to all this :)

    I bought it from the Apple shop,so it is factory unlocked. I am going to Beijing in January and I know that most hotels don't have wireless.So,is there any kind of adapter that I can buy that will connect my iphone to the web through the cables in the hotels? (Not a tech-head at all,but I guess all ethernet cables are the same around the world...I think !)

    Thanks for any help in advance :)

    You want something like the airport express that will easily make a wired connection wireless.

    Not sure what you mean by that. I know there will be wi-fi spots in the city and of course,I can use my credit from my SIM card etc,but it in the hotel at night when I want to browse as I don't want to take a lap-top.

    What Sahnert said.

    Whenever I travel, I take along an extra airport express for hotels that don't have wireless. Works like a charm and it's very small. Set it up at home, before you go though.

    Ahh...I think I know what you are on about...told you I was new here !

    So,the hotel ethernet cable plugs into this device and it emits a wireless signal for my iphone to connect to ?
