Tethering updates... post here

Just wanted to start a thread for people to update their tethering results. Currently, i don't think anyone has been able to figure out how to do it. Also there are no 3rd party apps that i know of.

If anybody finds any news regarding tethering... post here please thanks!!

Re: Tethering updates... post here

I tried to tether via bluetooth, and an error message popped up saying my account "does not allow internet sharing. See Sprint for help." Or something to that effect. Oh well. I'm sure something similar to PDANet will eventually come to the Pre.

The very minute i find a pre update for tethering, i'll hop on my horse and gallop happily to buy the phone. Its only a matter of time.

Re: Tethering updates... post here

Its physically possible to tether, however currently Sprint blocks it. So you can connect to your computer, but you can't share internet connection

Re: Tethering updates... post here

The main reason I tethered was to use my web browser, with the web browser of the pre it isnt' as much of a necessity anymore.

Re: Tethering updates... post here

You've got a good point. The browser on my HTC Touch is pretty bad, even opera. Therefore i tether my connection to my laptop for a much better browsing experience. Though with the great browser on the pre, it won't be so bad.

I might just take the plunge now and hope that a 3rd party app comes out soon.

Re: Tethering updates... post here

If Tethering is important to you beyond browsing dont' buy the phone with the idea it will tether in the future. It may have tethering enabled later on, it may not.

Yeah, I'll still be happy with my purchase if tethering is never unlocked. Though what are the chances of that. Slim i hope.
