sprint hotspot, no good?

so its safe to say that the sprint hotspot app that comes with the phone is basically null unless i pay the $30/month? so that means im stuck with pdanet/easytethering right? well my phone is a tp2 with the wmwifirouter app and i can tether off that freely. so my question is can i use the same app for her shift? now i know 4g isnt in my area but sometimes i can pull 500k-1mb of downstream off my tp2, so is it safe to say i can do teh same with her phone?

Re: sprint hotspot, no good?

not really true.. If you root your phone, and load a custom rom, then you can use the built in Sprint Hot Spot for free... Works like a champ too. Currently it only works with 3G.. but since that's all you get anyway.. shouldn't be a problem. Can't use WMWifirouter, not make for the android OPS yet.

Re: sprint hotspot, no good?

I'm using PdaNet right now. Also have wireless tether installed. Both work great. I'm rooted, running stock sence rom.

Re: sprint hotspot, no good?

wireless tether works as long as you are rooted. I use it on my evo and have rooted and installed on a coworkers shift.
