Yes, generally you can do it. Or you can connect the phone with a USB cable. In both cases the laptop will see the phone as a dial-up modem. What's the phone model, and who's your wireless provider?

You need to see if your cell plan includes something called "tethering". If it doesn't, you'll be charged extra.

Usually, it's a feature you see associated with smart phones, so it would really be dependent on which specific model phone you have.
