    Hi, is there a chance to use (connect) internet from the iPhone to be able to go online with my MBP? I know that Nokia and SE have the option without any trouble (you just connect it through a cable) so I was wondering if I could do the same with iPhone? Anyone knows?

    It's always been possible with jailbreaking. This isn't new.

    any chance someone will write application that will allow it without the jailbreak? I just don't understand why wouldn't Apple allow it as it will increase my use of their products. I would eventually like to have the nice products from Apple only if they get reasonable :D

    Same thing here in Germany, with the new iPhone contract we can use our data plan with other devices. The question is: will there be an official method/app etc. to tether or do we have to jailbreak/buy a usb umts modem with multisim.

    Not an Apple issue. Its the phone carrier that decides this.

    I'm based in UK so you made me very happy. The only thing I would also like is that when I go on holiday (I'm going to Italy this summer) I would like to be able to send something when I'm there. :(
