    You mean you want to use your phone to connect your (laptop) computer to the internet?

    Yes, I do that when I need it. It works well for me. I use Android 2.2's built-in 'portable hotspot' feature for a wireless connection between phone and computer. An alternative is the free 'PDAnet' app, in the Market, which I've used tethered via USB1 cable.
    The speed is as fast as when you surf the internet on your phone, because you are surfing via your phone's mobile connection of course. IRL fast enough for me to stream fullscreen HD BBC documentaries and XXX videos fine... :D

    But you should be aware that there is no such thing as 'unlimited surfing' via mobile (phone) connections. Every byte you up- or download is tallied. And if you exceed your carrier's "fair use policy" – which effectively is a cap, of course – things can get very expensive.

    If you want to avoid that risk then don't watch streaming video/TV, or sports games, or do any gaming while you are on a mobile (=phone) network (2G, 3G, CDMA, etc.), but do that when you are on WiFi only!

    The free 'Y5' app (in the Market) automatically reconnects to WiFi hotspots you were connected to before, if you're within range.
