Surfing with iPod Touch out and about with another 3G phone
OK, strictly this isn't an iPhone tip, because you've already got network access, though I suppose you could use it if you have a Nokia phone on another contract and want to use up some of that provider's data plan.
By loading the Joiku application onto the Nokia phone (in Mitchell's example it's an E71), you then effectively create a Wi-Fi hotspot with that phone. The iPod Touch (or iPhone, or laptop, or any other wireless-enabled device) can then connect to that network.
The advantage for Mitchell is that he can purchase songs from the iTunes Store even when not on a "real" Wi-Fi network. It doesn't require any jailbreaking of the iPod Touch or iPhone, either.
