    Just out of interest, but why would you want to do that? If you have a PC, then why not use the PC?

    It is dangerous to browse the net from the bath using a desktop pc plugged into the mains.

    I dont know why i would want it, its just one of those things i guess, I could plug it into my server machine so that when my main pc is off and i just wanted to look at something quickly i could use the phone instead of booting up the PC.

    I dont know, just wanted to know if its possible to do??

    I've done this before with my Pocket PC and my PC. I had a BT dongle on my PC and used the internet connection wizard on the Pocket PC to set up an internet connection through the PC. Not sure about phones though...
