Free way to use phone as modem

I am getting a new Treo Pro next week, as a replacement for the 3rd refurbished Treo 800w from Sprint that didn't work correctly.

One of my chief concerns is how I will use the phone as a modem. On the 800w, I needed only to delete one registry key and everything worked great using the Internet Sharing application. On the Treo Pro, I've read somewhere that this little fix won't work. I REALLY don't feel like paying any $ to buy a 3rd-party application, though...despite the good things I hear about PDANet and wmWiFirouter. Anyone know of a free workaround?

Re: Free way to use phone as modem

there is a thread on treocentral.com that has a link to the software with instructions...search "tethering with treo pro"
I tried it out and it works great!

I use Alltel and have made no changes and had no problems.

Turn off allow USB connection in active sync, plug in the phone. Start ICS on the Pro, click connect and surf.

Re: Free way to use phone as modem

I don't understand why all these people do not see that "Internet Sharing" icon in the program files. Click that, select "connect with usb" and plug it in. give it a second and it works!!!
