Use the Curve as a WIFI modem?

I have Broadband Internet and i have a WIFI Router and it works great. I can connect my Curve to the WIFI and use it for UMA calling and web surfing, but the question i have is how to turn the Phone into, basically a network card.


I leave a lot and there is a lot of free wifi in coffee shops and i want to tether my phone and use the Wifi they provide. I can use edge trough t-mobile, but I WANT THE HIGHSPEED WIFI.  I already have the tether protocol and can connect to the INTERNET TMOBILE provides, but one more time. I WANT TO USE MY PHONE AS A NETWORK CARD, and NOT CONNECT THROUGH TMOBILE, see im leaving a lot over seas too, and well, hotel WIFI adn Coffee shop WIFI is FREE.


Please some one help, if possible. It'll save me .015 per KB
