Internet via USB

Is there a way to get internet on the iphone through a usb cable connected to a computer that has internet? This would be great for someplace like my dad's office where there is no wifi or cell service.

Thanks,

Matt

Re: Internet via USB

From what I have heard Apple did not allow access through USB for any syncing other than with iTunes for example SPB Wallet/ SBSH SafeWallet both use your Wifi network via Bonjour.

One of my forum buddies at SPB found this Link which advises that with the release of 3.0, some apps have now been enabled for USB Sync, he advised the following 3rd party apps supported syncing via USB.

* Good reader
* FileAid
* iStoreage

He believed they are using the external Accessory API, so this may mean that some 3rd party devloper may make an app that could be used to open the USB sync for internet...

I have tested to see if my iPhone 3G would be able to use the interent via USB with OS 3.1.2 & both Wifi & 3G turned off... the answer is NO.

I doubt this will be added as most people would have access to either their 3G data plans (I currently have 2GB plan) or Wifi network. I could be proven wrong in the future (& I hope I am) that Apple may release this option.

Cheers

Jace

Re: Internet via USB

I shall never understand what attracts people to such a crippled device.

Active Sync has supported Internet over USB for years.

Re: Internet via USB

I remember reading on a site while back that there was actually a way to do this.
I will have to search for the site again though to find it. When I find it I will post it here.
