@sonisoe: Yes, see my wireless tethering section in the Android User's Howto Wiki athttp://wiki.dandascalescu.com/howtos/android#Network. I've also posted a side-by-side comparison with pictures between the Samsung Galaxy and HTC Hero: http://wiki.dandascalescu.com/reviews/gadgets/pda_phones/samsung_i7500_galaxy_vs_htc_hero

The Hero has an abominable Calendar app. They removed the week view, and the month view does not show the sidebars like the standard Google Calendar. The worst thing is you cannot get the original Calendar app back! Samsung is right to keep the vanilla Android apps. At least they don't remove functionality like HTC.

I am so disappointed with Samsung about this phone I just have to warn everybody: do NOT buy it. The Samsung update software (New pc studio) from Samsung only works in windows and it doesn't detect nor update the phone. It is absolutely frustrating to have this phone for months with Android 1.5 . My personal opinion, I'll never, ever, buy a Samsung phone again.
