    Just wanted to share my experience with ' My Tether ' and compare Sprint's data speed to frustrating AT&T!

    I'm finally warming up to Sprint and, especially the Pre !!

    It's $15 very well spent!! Highly recommended!! I would've done this long ago if rooting wasn't required.

    Just installed 'My Tether' and connected the laptop thru WiFi and the speed is impressive indeed! [ ~ 1.5 Mbps ] Vs the snail-speed I was suffering with on the iPhone [ MyWi - JB'en app that has the same function as 'My Tether' ] !!

    This is such a relief !! I was getting ~ 50-100 Kbps on the iPhone!! There were times I was THIS close to throwing it at the wall !! [ although AT&T's to blame, not the iphone because I tried tethering on the Nokia N95-4 thru Joikuspot, and got the same slow results! ] Got bored of the 3GS too..

    This is for the Dallas/Richardson [75 and Greenville] area in Texas! In Ft. Worth, it's around 1.5 - 1.8 Mbps on the iPhone, which isn't bad at all..

    Paying $24/month including taxes [non-retail-employee plan] for unlimited everything plus incredible Int'l rates.. couldn't be better!!

    Time to hand over the 3GS to the fiance for a while..

    You can do this for free with the mobile hotspot app and you don't have to have it tethered with a USB cord. do a thread search and you should be able to find it. and yes it does work on Sprint with an original Pre. One of my favorite apps for sure.

    whoa, I have a JB iphone 3gs and i had an app called "MyWi" That was amazing. It was a great app especially when im driving with my kids and they have thier itouch to surf the web, or youtube. I live in Davenport Iowa and the At&t speeds were blazing fast? Where do you live?
