    A simple question - is there a way I can download files through my phone to the PC without saving them first to the memory card? Phone - usb cable - PC. I have an unlimited data plan, so I was thinking I could make use of it while my phone sits idle.

    Specifically torrents

    I assume you would just tether the phone as normal and then go to the relevant webpage or application on the pc to download it. It should pass straight through the phone's internet into the pc without residing on the phone. Settings > Wireless & Networks > Tethering & portable hotspots.

    Make sure your data plan is actually unlimited, most networks have a "fair usage policy" to stop you using obscene amounts.
