Can you Internet share with the iPhone?

I was woundering if the iPone can share the Internet like other cell phones can with computers?

no at the moment it can’t. And its unlikely to in the future as it would upset the carriers that are providing unlimited data.

Nope, its fairly disspointing… I would love to also be able to share my iPhone/iPod Touch music with an AirPort express or an Apple TV so I can take advantage of the Wi-Fi capabilities and control my music anywhere in my house…

If you mean tethering, where your computer uses the phone as its internet connection, then no.

But if you jailbreak your phone, you can install a web server on it, and share your music on the local network over HTTP (or even the internet at large, if you have a router and set it up so that port 80 is directed to your iPhone). :)
