The iPhone won't accept and internet connection via BT. Just not built in the software.
If you have a tethering plan you can to the reverse - iPhone to MB - but not the other way.
You can, however, create an ad hoc WIFI network with your MB and share that to the iPhone, providing the MB is getting its net access via ethernet.
Not a problem.
They do it because, generally speaking, people use either WiFi or 3G to access data. Tethering it to a computer via BT is very, very uncommon and adding that protocol would take up additional space (and create additional complications).
Best course of action is to go to a few Win7 forums and get some advice on the adhoc network.
I spent a couple of hours dealing with this today. My carrier (in Canada) said it was Apple's fault. Apple support spent 30 minutes on the phone with me, trying to make it work instead of telling me it was impossible... then suggested the Apple Store would help me.
If you are correct, and the BT connection is not possible... um, what is the point of having BT on the phone?
