    iPhone WiFi and laptop WiFi are unrelated.

    Wherever your iPhone is able to use WiFi, your laptop should also be able to use it. If you have AT&T DSL at your house, you can login with your information and use WiFi at any Starbucks nationwide.

    You aren't able to tether your iPhone to your computer and get internet.

    That's an interesting question. So you want to know if you can have your iPhone share its internet connection with your laptop. Jailbreak it and you can. It's call tethering and you can even do it for the 3G connection if you are not around a wifi signal.
