Tethering

I needed to tether my lappy because built-in wifi crapped out. I am using a usb connection and turned on usb tether in settings. Works perfect by the way! I also had to go to Sammy website to download official winxp drivers for laptop first.

Are there any charges to usb tethering on sprint? Lol hope not. I know hotspot tethering has a 30 monthly charge....

Re: Tethering

If you root, you can get wireless for free.

As for charges, I am not with Sprint anymore but I would think that they WILL charge you.

Highly unlikely Sprint will ever discover you tethering.
