I was wondering if it is possible to connect my xbox360 to my iPhone with the usb cord and get an internet connection on my xbox. My iPhone connects directly to a satellite and gets internet connection off that. If it were possible does anyone know how to do it? If you do know how to do it can you please post some steps for me.

Thank You Very Very Much!

P.S. If you can answer quickly it would be really cool because im going to a party later today and I want to show everyone that if you have an xbox360 an iPhone is a must!

    No, you cannot use the iPhone to give your xbox internet access.

    I'm also pretty sure you can't use it for music either due to the Apple Verification chip.

    Hello PhatyHealz

    I personally have an Xbox 360 and have not seen and or known an iPhone to give it internet or even see it's data via a USB Connection.

    Plus you would not have enough Bandwidth coming from the iPhone to efficiently run your Xbox Live games. Especially on EDGE speed. If you have a WiFi connection in the house, You can always purchase an Adapter for Xbox so you can get on your Home Wireless.

    As far as seeing any of the Data on the iPhone. All Music and Videos need to be on an External HD and that HD connect to your Xbox for it to access any files you may have on the iPhone.

    Hope you find this information some what useful
