    Has anybody been able to use thier Galaxy S as a 3g modem for their computer. I occassionally use my Sony 850i as a modem for my laptop, and would want to use the Galaxy S in a similar way. However, I have read various reports of people having difficulty connecting the phone to a computer let alone managing to use it as a modem. Has anybody actually been able to do this yet?

    Yep - not problem. I just set the phone USB connection to PC connection - connected via the usb cable and it did the rest.
