    Hi, someone told me that O2 allows this but I forgot the right term for it so could someone help me with my situation please? I need to be able to access internet on my PBG4 through my iPhone as I'm going on a holiday and there is no internet cafe :(

    Here in Canada/the US, the term commonly used is 'tethering'.

    I don't know if this is possible with the iPhone, but I hope that helps you in your search.

    Sorry, I can't help with your answer, but just a word of advice. I don't know where you are going on holiday, but if you are going abroad BE CAREFUL!

    The charges of using 3G internet abroad could be really, really high.

    If you have a 3G iPhone which supports Bluetooth, then you can set it up as a bluetooth modem ( while setting it up as a bluetooth device ) and then connect to the Internet through the iPhone from Sys Preferences/Network, or directly if you have the modem icon on the menubar!
