    You need to turn your phone into a hotspot to which your carrier will most likely charge a fee for, I would start by calling them. If you want to do it for free then you will have to attempt to root your phone and install a 3rd party hotspot app. I am not up to date with the X10 community so it might be worth it to post this in the X10 area.

    Welcome to Android Forums!

    With Android 2.2, the ability to tether was built into the OS, however as Harmless pointed out, your carrier may charge an additional fee to enable tethering on your data plan. There is an app called Pdanet that could enable tethering, but if your carrier charges for tethering it may also be blocked in the market. First thing to do is check with your carrier.
