    Its obviously a sensative issue enough for Sprint to warn certain websites of possible lawsuit for explaining the "hack"

    I already bought one and am patiently waiting for tethering. I miss it but not too much.

    Using your cell phone as a modem. You essentially bridge the 3G data connection and either USB, Wifi, or Bluetooth so that you can use your laptop instead of the phone. It's basically what the Mifi does without buying a whole other device.
