    Why wouldn't you just use WiFi?

    But if your computer has internet, why would you need it on your phone?...Just a little confused as to the "why"? I don't really know of any reverse tethering app or anything that would make this possible.

    Does your computer have wireless capability. If so you could create an ad hoc connection to your phone and enable Internet connection sharing.

    One of the reasons I could see using it is if your have poor reception in a building (say a warehouse). I do connect to wifi while at work but.... if I didn't have wifi and I had to work out on the floor, my phone would die from constantly searching for a signal and not receive calls. If I could use the internet from one of the computers on the floor I would be set (in theory).... Just thought I'd throw out a possible scenario for why you would want it.

    Did you try the program that Syndicate suggested? I'm curious to know how that turns out.
