    I've read different answers.

    Some have said that sprint doesn't allow tethering.

    Is that still true?

    I've been tethering to my ipod touch since last september and haven't heard anything from sprint. Used anywhere from 1-6GB and I haven't received any notices. Phone data is truly unlimited.

    I used my pre to tether for a month while we just moved and didn't have internet yet. After a couple days, every night, sprint would drop my data connection. It would be back the next morning but they would definitely cut me off and I would get a pop up on my phone saying I was cut off for a few hours.

    From Sprint's Terms & Conditions :

Our data services may not be used: (i) to generate excessive amounts of Internet traffic through the continuous, unattended streaming, downloading or uploading of videos or other files or to operate hosting services including, but not limited to, web or gaming hosting; (ii) to maintain continuous active network connections to the Internet such as through a web camera or machine-to-machine connections that do not involve active participation by a person; (iii) to disrupt email use by others using automated or manual routines, including, but not limited to "auto-responders" or cancel bots or other similar routines; (iv) to transmit or facilitate any unsolicited or unauthorized advertising, telemarketing, promotional materials, "junk mail", unsolicited commercial or bulk email, or fax; (v) for activities adversely affecting the ability of other people or systems to use either Sprint's wireless services or other parties' Internet-based resources, including, but not limited to, "denial of service" (DoS) attacks against another network host or individual user; (vi) for an activity that connects any device to Personal Computers (including without limitation, laptops), or other equipment for the purpose of transmitting wireless data over the network (unless customer is using a plan designated for such usage); or (vi) for any other reason that, in our sole discretion violates our policy of providing service for individual use. Unlimited Use Plans. If you subscribe to rate plans, services or features that are described as unlimited, you should be aware that such "unlimited" plans are subject to these Sprint Prohibited Network Uses.
    They used to offer a Phone-as-Modem add-on for any phone that was web capable and could be connected to a PC via a USB cable. It seems that they do not offer that plan option any more. Now it seems they only offer that service for phones that are capable as acting as a WiFi hotspot, with the Mobile HotSpot add-on. Interestingly enough, the Mobile HotSpot add-on is $10 cheaper than what the Phone-as-Modem add-on was.

    Here's a link to the old Phone-as-Modem plan (no longer offered):

    Touchscreens are a fad.
