I live in a rural area where a broadband internet connection isn’t possible. Anybody know if I can use my iPhone to provide that connection to my desktop?

aaahhh the ol' tethering...I had that goin on when I had my treo but we ain't tlkn bout treos are we? LOL but I don't think that you can use the iPhone as a tethering device...you would think so with the Bluetooth and wifi capabilites

Oh you can....I've done it.

Basically install a Socks proxy server on the phone then using ad-hock Wi-Fi you tether them and then can use the internet. It's not the easiest way and has it's issues, but it does work.
