    is there a way to use bluetooth or the iphone cable to run my MBPs internet off edge?

    ive seen people do it on the bus with blackberrys and stuff...

    and when i would sync my razr with my computer it would ask me if i wanted to use the razr internet when another source was not available/...

    with any other phone i would never do it but i pay for unlimited internet with this thing so i want to exploit that hahah

    yes, go into the terminal on your computer and type

    ssh -ND 9999 root@youriphonesipaddress

    type yes at the prompt, and type your password

    after you type your password dont type anything else, just minimize the window (DONT CLOSE IT)

    and yes you must type the (OMG) one line into the terminal everytime.

    Your SSH password

    the defaults are
    FW 1.0.2 - dottie
    FW 1.1.1-1.1.2 - alpine

    or whatever you had set it to.

    to change it, install mobile terminal and enter "passwd"

    when you are finished with your "tethering session" or whatever you'd like to call it, you have to uncheck the SOCKS proxy box for your computer to recognize another internet connection.
