    Hey Matt I can help you

    Basically you need to download easy tether on your adnroid phone (search pdanet) and then follow the instructions, install easy tether on your computer
    Remember you need to connect your phone using a usb to your computer
    and then when all of that is done basically just right click the easy tether icon and click connect to android etc.

    It shouldn't cost you if you have unlimited internet.

    I hope that helps.

    and I'll direct Tom or David here to answer the rest!

    Thanks shar this helped quite a bit

    edit - might just get t-mobile 10 unlimited internet sim with 100txt and min as im not on contract and i dont text much.

    edit again - Although i'm still wondering if i can do the tethering over bluetooth so like lets say ive got my mobile which has unlimited internet could i connect my ipod touch to the mobile via bluetooth as thats an option on that pdanet then go about it that way.

    PDANet allows you to run a service called Bluetooth Tethering. What this really is doing is creating a Bluetooth DUN service where bluetooth enabled devices can connect to and use the internet over the DUN service.

    Out of the box you CANNOT do this on an iPod. However it's certainly possible through an application called iBluever, however I believe you have to be jailbroken to get that particular application.

    Yeah i've heard of that app, doing it like this would still need me to have unlimited internet data on the android phone?

    Unlimited data always helps, although I know people who have tethered with 500MB dataplans. Not ideal at all because you end up consuming all your month's data fairly quickly, but it's certainly possible if that's what you mean.
