    If say i don't have wireless connection on my iphone, but it's always connected to 3G which has it's own IP address.

    Can I somehow remote control my iphone using my desktop computer?
    I know VNC does that but I cannot get it to work without wifi..

    No. Cellular devices go share a public IP address through a NAT. Cellular providers do not forward ports through the NAT for your devices.

    Depending on the type of account you have and what carrier you're on they may have a plan addon for a static IP. We have a few wireless cards with Sprint that have static addresses to make it easier to support some mobile users. I've been told if it was necessary they could assign a static to a cell phone for a user that might want to use wireless tethering on their device. The charge for the feature will also vary. Our plans are highly customized and we get away with it for $3 a month.
