Cell phone question

Is there a way to hook up your cell phone to your computer and use the cell signal as an internet connection ON YOUR COMPUTER? I don't mean accessing the internet on your phone, but actually on the computer with the cell phone signal.

It is possible..

I've done this with my nokia phone.
My regular internet connection was down and I was using my phone as a modem..

Here's a howto for Nokia phones..

I have friends that use their Blackberries and iPhones as modems for their computers.

From what I understand is it kills the battery on your cell phone very easily and quickly, in a couple hours maybe, so that would be the down side.
