Turning a cellphone into a WiFi access point should be a cinch. But as anyone who has attempted to rig their phone to a USB cable can tell you, it's a huge pain to get working with any kind of speed and reliability. Nathan True set out to find a solution, and he explains every painful detail on his blog. This is not kids' stuff—you will need a soldering gun, and some coding skillz. And a Nokia 3220 wouldn't hurt either if you plan to follow Nathan's recipe. The upside: WiFi anywhere for a fraction of the price of an EVDO card and service plan.
