One of the reasons I have held off purchasing an iPhone is that I can't use it as a modem with my PowerBook.

Wired have published a blog about a $10 program called NetShare that enables this feature, along with a 'how-to' guide for setting it up.

It would appear from the comments that there is some ambiguity as to whether Apple are happy with this, but if you have a 3G iPhone, and want the modem facility, it is worth checking out.

checking it out is easier said than done, Brett. It has never been available from the UK app store, as far as I can tell. And it has now been removed from the US store for the second time. Any fellow readers manage to pay the $10 and grab it while it was available and verify it works in the UK?

Yep, seems like Apple can't make up their mind is this is an 'OK' app or not... be interesting to see if this goads them into introducing the capability in an update, or whether they choose to block it completely
