I'm currently in China for a few months and I need to find a way to get internet to my laptop. I can't really set up a wifi connection in my flat since i'm staying with other people and only here for a few months but I want to try and set up a connection between my iphone and my laptop so that I can use the data on my Chinese sim card so that I can surf the net on my mac.

I looked around and saw windows has something called Connectify. Can this be done on a mac? Any tips to making it happen?

What about a PAYG dongle with the same carrier as your sim card?
