I used Joikuspot on my N95 and it worked like a charm. You can download a free version - Joikuspot Lite, or pay around 15euros for the Premium version.

Once installed onto your phone, simply go into the application and run it. It connects to the internet using your sim card's data connection, and then turns your phone into a wifi hotspot.

THis then allows your laptop to connect to the phone via wifi, and get online. It's better to get a good 3G signal, otherwise browsing will be very slow, otherwise, I think it's a great application.

Difference between Lite and Premium version ( apart from one being the free and the other paid for) ?

Lite - Does not allow you send mail via webmail ( eg Google / Hotmail / Yahoo ) , will not connect to VPN's, and I think you may also struggle to get onto Online Banking sites. ( NOTE - these features will all work if you're on a Mac, but not Windows ! )

Premium - lets you all of the above Lite does not.
