Question about Apple iPhone Smartphone
Is it possible to connect to the internet on my laptop by networking with a IPhone3G?

No it is not at present possible to do that as 'tethering' the iphone and using it as a modem is not possible

Your answer to this is "im sure its possible, and im almost certain that it is".
The reason being is that the Iphone was intentionally designed to be used for internet applications, as well as music playback. Now in order to get the music onto the device, you will need a USB or similar compatible hardware device (computer or laptop), and a transport method/ protocol (very certainly to be USB interface).
Now with this all in mind, all you need now is an internet protocol transport method, which is embedded on your phone from when it was built, andd of course a computer with an operating system that will work effectively and is not likely to fall foul short of functioning properly with your beloved Iphone (in this case, dont bother using microsoft windows if you can help it, and Vista is a certain no-go for anyone with any knowledge of driver issues relating to non-MS products).
Now as far as I know, i sayIT SHOULD be possible to hitch up to the internet using your IPhone, but in your circumstances, you should verify this with your service provider (phone) in case they get the ache with you trying this. Also search engines such as http://www.google.co.uk/ are your friend, so do use them to seek out the Iphone forums and see what others have done about it.
Now you should find that your phone arrived with a disk/ CD/ DVD and this will contain the driver software and readme files for linking your phone to a computer. If you dont have the disk, dont worry, you can get the drivers from searching at the google search engine, then download them and shove them onto either a pen drive or a disc, and away you go in complete success.
I hope this works for you,
Best of luck
