Nope, and I don't believe any mobile provider offers this.

Best I can suggest is no-ip.org

I use a no-ip address and a tstick for a remote weather station so a client can login to it and check the figures.

I have a FTP site I need to log in to to send files which requires a static IP for access (for security reasons).  I was hoping to be able to use a mobile phone tethered to a lap top to provide a mobile way of achieving this.  


I looked at no-ip.org but that seems to be more aimed at people wanting to run a server, rather than access one.


My knowledge in this area is somewhat limited

In this case you are more likely to achieve this by getting a wired static IP connection and remote controlling the PC with the static address...

Yes, this is on my wishlist too with Vodafone.  Would be very very handy.

Thanks for the idea - I could use a VNC connection from the laptop to my desktop (which has a static IP already) and ftp the file from there. :)

To be honest there's never been a lot of demand for staic IP addresses for INternet connections. I have probably had less than 10 over the last 5 years. But if htere's a large demand that cannot be met by using the options described earlier then I'd be happy to feed this to out product team.

I'm sure they would be happy to develop a product that will bring in another 50,000-100,000 connections and $10-20M per month.

I assume you'd be happy to pay lots for this type of service :)
