Not possible. I guess you are left with using the slow EDGE network...

The iPhone does not allow tethering so it's not possible.

I beg to differ, I beilve using 3rd party apps you may tether with the iPhone. I have seen it done.

While teethering is possible with the iPhone, you still (as of now) can't access internet through the USB port (can ANY device do that?)....

Yes.. I tether my Treo 700p through the usb port for internet access. It's actually pretty quick too.

I should clarify that and say "out of the box it's not possible".

Hey, found this coz I was looking for the same thing. I havent tried it yet, but let me know if it works
EDGE is expensive as the data plan in Japan is around $60/mo.
Plus, I travel a lot and it's much cheaper to use internet through my laptop.

How to: Internet on iPhone through USB. No WIFI. No EDGE.
