I have an iPhone with 3g connection and I want to transfer it to my PC laptop via USB cable, and not WiFi.

Is there any solution or tool for that?

Note: I'm running Windows Vista.

This is called iPhone USB tethering: "Connect your iPhone to your computer via USB and select the iPhone USB network service as your network connection. All the necessary software is automatically installed using iTunes."

Tethering doesn't work on AT&T though. So unless you are willing to jailbreak your iPhone (voiding the warranty and making yourself vulnerable to malicious software) you can't do it.

If your phone IS jailbroken, then there is a walkthrough here that will take you through the process.
