I have a new Dell Windows 7 laptop and an old Apple iphone. I would like to tether the two so I can access the internet using my iphone. How can this be done?

Hi ladyann. There is an Application you can purchase from Apple's App Store.... Wait, do you want to connect to the internet through your iPhones internal modem, or access the internet FROM your iPhone? Do you have a wireless network at home?

O.K. If I am out of range of my home network and wish to access the internet from my laptop can I connect to the internet via my iphone by tethering?

It seems that App is for iPhone 3G and upwards.

I know this can work, my sister had it set up on her *jailbroken* 2g iPhone. I'll call her tomorrow for more info, it's 04.39 now!

Is your phone jailbroken and what firmware version is installed?
