Using mobile phone as modem.
Didn't really know how to title this thread, but I need some questions answered which will decide what phone I'm going to get next, as I'm due an upgrade.
I think I've narrowed it down to i-Phone or Nokia N97 anyways, so the decision isn't difficult.
I'm currently paying around £40 per month on Voda, which includes a seperate net Dongle which is limited to 3GB per month which is more than enough for my needs.
Now the contracts I'm looking at allows for unlimited internet access via the phone for approx £40 per month still with the phone for free. But the wuestion I want to know is, can I use this unlimited net access as bandwidth usage on my laptop and be done with the net dongle?
The guy I spoke to at Voda tells me I can't with the N97, it's seperate on Voda contracts. I've been looking into the i-Phone setup, and my brother inlaw tells me I can get software to allow me to use the i-phone as a modem, and using the phones net bandwidth that I'm already paying for. Can anyone confirm this can be done? And if so, why can't it be done on the Nokia N97?
