You’ll need a hacked iPhone and will have to setup an SSH proxy, and the connection will be slow compared to what you are used to when hooked up via wifi, but hey, a slow connection is better than no connection, right?

I’ve tethered my MacBook to my Nokia N95 (running Symbian OS) and my HTC 3125 (running Windows Mobile) easily with no issues at all, via USB and Bluetooth.
