    No i am not using a tethering plan. I am using the unlimited data plan (see my other thread to find out how to get the grandfathered unlimited data yourself).

    Yes so using the mobile hotspot app may have AT&T charge you extra for tethering, that's what were concerned about. Freetether shows the data usage as from the phone itself through IP forwarding. Why not use that instead?

    Free tether never works reliably for me.

    I tried it and it works. I think I will wait to see if anyone else tries it and ATT notices they are doing it.

    I also have the unlimited data plan which I don't want to lose. I use Freetether almost daily and it works great other than always having to reboot the phone when you are done. I would like to find something more reliable.

    I wish the developer would update Freetether. I know they are no longer updating it but I would definitely pay for a fully functioning app.

    Can I use either the Mobile Hotspot or the Free Tether apps to tether to an Android Tablet?

    Confirmed. It is a huge improvement over the previous version. My network GiffGaff can see if I use the MobileHotSpot app. I get an automated message from them telling me that it isn't part of my plan. FreeTether seems to work great, although I don't really use it

    I have a pre3 and mytether doesnt work well at all to tether the touchpad - it says it works for bluetooth and also for wifi, but I cant get either to work--I'd prefer to tether with bluetooth...

    What are the settings to freetether tether via wifi and bluetooth on the pre3 to the touchpad? This is what I need to tether.

    Please help.... thanks...

    You shouldnt need to do anything except configure your SSID and passphrase for wifi. I dont bother with bluetooth cause it looks like too much trouble and the transfer rates would suck.

    That sounds simple enough - but I just tried it and unfortunatel, after I set the ssid to the default aonet and set an 8 didigt alphanumeric passcode, then the "Enabling WiFi Tethering..." option just shows an endlessly spinning rotating indicator....

    I sure wish this worked...

    EXACTLY! I have the same problem with my pre3 - Mobile HotSpot shows connected but cannot tether! Gives a warning the first time with my unlocked SIM from my HD2 T9193 (which tethers perfectly with the same sim on an unlimited data plan) then will connect but not tether.
    Tried freetether - wont work, donated to that but no help
    tried mytether - wont work, even paid for that and no help
    (p.s. add "My Home Keyboard" to my list of paid/unsupported apps that are junk on the Pre3, the keyboard is misformatted!)

    Pardon me, getting back to the tetherng--but how am I to tether the Touchpad to the pre3? Nothing works! How does anyone tether a pre3 to a touchpad? I'd love to know exactly how...it should work, but it doesn't... Why is tethering so hard to the touchpad, was not the pre3 DESIGNED to work with the touchpad? Thx...

    My Pre3 doesnt work for tethering either with mobile hotspot..this is frustrating.

    How exactly did this work for you guys? Are you sure it actualy tethered, or you just saw the "connected" message from mobile hotspot anf the client touchpad reported as connected--but wont yield usable web access....
