The key question here is whether the phone is connected to a cellular

I don't think the OP is looking for routing thru GSM network. It would be an
overkill, IMHO, and an expensive one, as you would have to pay for the GSM
network data usage. I think he just wants to route local traffic over the phone
itself - i.e. use it as a simple local bridge or router.
P.S. Routing over a WiFi hotspot might be feasible, though.
Yes. The use-case I was thinking of was a PC that was out of range of the WiFi, hence my question.
