    I'm not sure if I made sense in the title. Basically my 3G or Edge signal in my home is dead. I might get 1 bar and it fades in and out. So on Cydia at my house is useless. Is there anyway I can use my PC internet connection through my Iphone. Kinda like a reverse tethering. Instead of using my phone as a modem use my pc modem to my phone.

    Thanks in Advance

    U should let AT&T know, maybe can get one of those free micro cells they were giving away to people in ur situation. Worth a shot.

    Well I'm already on a really fast cable modem through Comcast with a 3 HD box and internet package deal. Yeh I guess I can call AT&T and see if I can get a micro-cell. I've been with them for 10 years I think going all the way back into the Cingular days before mobile to mobile and all that, haha.

    connect a WiFi Router to your Cable Modem, that will give you a WiFi signal that your iPhone will use rather than Edge or 3G.


    The AT&T Microcell works on any high speed internet connection, and basically creates a "local" 3G signal that allows you to make 3G-based phone calls.

    Before you get the Microcell, be sure to check out reviews. Many people have had issues with clipping/skipping audio. I had these issues as well.

    Dang, I can't believe I didn't think about a wireless router. Screw a $150 micro cell from AT&T
