Can't remember the technical term for it but I seem to remember hearing you can use your mobile to get internet for your computer when Wi-Fi is unavailable, or am I imagining it?

Here's one article on the subject.  Check to see what your cell phone company's policies and fees regarding this feature are (i.e., just because the phone does the work of redistributing the signal, doesn't mean the phone company will necessarily let you do this for free).
