    Being impressed by what I saw and read about Hero, I'm considering getting one.
    What usually isn't part of the reviews is, how the sync application(s) work together with the phone. I see there's a decent solution for syncing with Outlook through HTC sync.
    It makes me wonder if there's also a possibility to share the internet connection on PC with HTC sync or any other app? I mean, to use the phone as a 3G modem when connected to PC?
    This feature would help a lot - since I don't have a separate mobile net stick on my laptop, but used my phone so far to have internet access on the go. With Windows Mobile phone and ActiveSync it was quite buggy but possible, with my current Nokia phone and the Nokia Software it's just two clicks after I connect the phone to the PC... I wonder if there's a similar solution supported for Android?

    Thanks in advace!

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure this is possible using the HTC Sync software. I've never tried it, but hopefully someone will be along soon who has.
