Notsure tethering possible on MetroPcs Indulge sch-r910?

I have a samsung indulge sch-r910 4g phone that I would like to be able to use for tethering or creating a wifi hotspot so I can use my laptop at work. Is there an app out there that will make this possible?

I'd ask in that device forum. But only if you are paying for the tethering.

PSA about tethering

(^ Not for your device, but still related).

Welcome to the AndroidForums, redu352.

Unfortunately, Metro PCS does not currently allow tethering on phones that they carry:

MetroPCS's Official Tethering Policy

MetroPCS's official tethering policy

According to the MetroPCS's Terms of Service (ToS) available at MetroPCS | MetroWEB | Terms of Use

MetroPCS's official policy about tethering is
Quote:
MetroWEB Service is intended for use on your device and not on any other equipment.
MetroWEB Service cannot be used for any applications that tether the device (through use of, including without limitation, connection kits, other phone/smartphone to computer accessories, BLUETOOTH® or any other wireless technology) to Personal Computers (including without limitation, laptops), or other equipment for any purpose.
Currently MetroPCS does not offer any plans that allow tethering.
