Default Phone screen on computer screen

On my defy, is there a way to see the phone screen on my laptop?
For example:
If I am watching a youtube video on my defy phone, is there a way that I can hook it up to my laptop and watch that same video on my laptop screen?

I am a truck driver and I have internet on my tmobile motoroal defy phone. It is way cheaper to have the internet on my phone, as compared to paying for it everytime I am at a truck stop.

Any help would be greatly appreciate
Thanks,
Joe

Is that what you meant? Tethering the internet connection to your laptop? If so, then yes you need tethering software like pdanet. If you want to display your phone's screen on your laptop, I believe there is a VNC server app available. I think you have to root the phone to use though.

If you can download the video, you can always mount your phone to your laptop (using the sync cable). Then you can pull the video off your SD card.

I hope this helps,
Bill
