I want to use iPhone as modem for laptop / pda

My previous phones I have used to access the internet by using the phone as a modem on my pda and laptop. How can I do this with my iPhone?
Thanks

You are not able to use it as a modem as it is a breach of the terms and conditions.

The iphone doesnt have the capability to be used as a modem.

However Tev32 is clearly right, You are not able to use your phone as a modem connected to your laptop in any way.

It can be done (I know) but its not advisable to do so.

I know this question has been raised so many times on hear already and the answer is always the same.

Sorry

i had a play with an iphone at the weekend and i found it couldnt do much at all lol , came to the conclusion that a 30 quid phone from a supermarket is better if you actually want to use a phone instead of a hyped up pda .

The iphone is more of a media device really than a business handset. A business handset is the likes of a XDA range, HTC Range or Blackberrys.
