3g iPhone Sim: can I get internet connection WITHOUT iPhone?

If I have an iPhone 3g sim card, can I get internet connection on my laptop via a bluetooth enabled phone?

I can't see why not

Would this in anyway invalidate the terms of usage?

If possible: are there in instructions for setting and using?

Thanks

thanks

i'll scrap that plan straight away :robotsurprised:

just out of interest: i wodner what measures they have for detecting if u are using a 'non iphone' device for connecting

the thing is: it wouldn't be rocket science to do
BUT: do they *actually* have somehting that actively blocks?

They can always tell when there is a connection to a laptop as a much larger volume of data is shifted in a much shorter time.
