    OK so I had my phone connected via USB to my work PC when I decided to check facebook. I opened up my app and it didn't work. So I grumled and uttered some profanities about facebook and their crappy app and proceeded to check my facebook via the browser only to find that it is being blocked...by my company! SO I disconnected myself from the external unmanaged wifi and put myself in airplane mode and connected again and behold I was using my PCs internet to brows the web.

    Was this always a feature and I missed something?

    I was assumume that it turns off data becuase it is pulling the connection from the PC. But I have certainly never heard of anything like it.

    My WinMo phone has an option do this for ActiveSync. The keyword here, though, is option--something WP7 could use a lot more of.

    well this certainly explains why every time I would unplug my phone from my work PC all my emails would all of a sudden come shooting through.

    OK I figured it out. Zune software has to be running in order for it to work.

    Well not only emails, the updates too! When you plug it in, the phone update it self immediately... Don't know why on WiFi is so slow on checking...
