Hmmm...I didn't have any problems running my 8500 as a modem for my laptop.
  While in Redmond the other week, the hotel wanted too much money for internet access. Fired up my phone, connected it to my laptop with the USB cable and it was recognized as a new network and I was browsing the internet at speeds most home users woule like to have. Of course, that was aa 3G network as well...Too bad my company didn't spring for laptops with BlueTooth...I would have liked to have tethered the phone to my laptop via BlueTooth to browse the that is seemless technology!

I played with the iPhone a bit, and it's very cool for sure. But, if
it's AT&T only, no thanks.
