The latest mobile phones running Windows Mobile have an option where you can use the phone as a USB Modem by simply loading up some software and hitting connect. This makes browsing the internet at high speed possible as long as you have a mobile phone signal. However, iPhone’s do not have this option built in. A new piece of software named iPhone Modem has been released which will allow you to use your iPhone as a modem for your laptop.
The iPhoneModem application has been released as an unofficial application which means it will only work on a phone which has been jail-broken. This is understandable though as the carriers of these phones do not want laptops sucking up all the free data you get on an iPhone plan.
The software is simple to use and costs just $9.99. It comes in two parts. Firstly, you install some software on your jail-broken phone and secondly you install a desktop application on your laptop. Once done you activate both and surf away over your mobile phone signal. Kind of cool and very handy should you need emergency access where no wi-fi signal is available.
