You might use key word searches in the forum search box in the upper right of this page. I don't remember anybody using a phone as an interface between a bot and the internet. People have used bluetooth connections between a phone and a bot.

How? How are you going to access your phone when the robot is running all over creation with it?
The art of getting good answers lies in asking good questions.

the robot will be connected to the phone via usb and the phone will use 3G/4G and that's how i will control it using my computer

If I am understanding you right, you want to do something like this:

Computer ---~~internet~~---> phone ---USB---> arduino ---> motors, etc (for robot control)

...correct?

There's a number of steps here that you haven't defined - a big one is how you intend to program the phone to interact with the Arduino (also - what kind of phone - android or iphone or something else?). I'm not saying that can't be done - but we need to know what, if any, thought you have given to each section.

From phone to usb - well, that's probably an OTG connection (though you may want to really consider bluetooth here - it's a more established method).

How do you intend to communicate to the phone? I can think of a few ways - but what ways have you thought about?

Do you understand the complexity of the problem you are facing? What parts have you gotten to work, if any (ie - have you been able to get your phone to communicate with the Arduino, or have you been able to remotely communicate with your phone via your computer and (I am presuming) the internet?)
I will not respond to Arduino help PM's from random forum users; if you have such a question, start a new topic thread.

thank you for you're reply
i want to build a robot that's connected to the phone via otg usb and the android phone connected to the internet via 3G/4G and then i will control it with my computer via the internet
so my question is how can i communicate between the computer and the phone to control the robot

This is a web controlled robot ,the commands are sent by clicking on the command button in the HTML interface , there are 5 commands available (up,down,left.right,break) when a specific button (command) is clicked a PHP based server receive the command and using android GCM mechanism the command is pushed to an android based device (samsung galaxy s3 in this case) which is connected to the internet and attached to the ardunio mega adk through usb cable .
when the command received by the android application , the application sends the command to the ardunio adk to move a continuous rotation servos attached to the ardunio board .

-P.S:no Ethernet shield is used or a wireless router , the internet are delivered to the robot through the android device which is connected to 3G internet network.
