Hello arcolino1. Welcome to the forums.

Here is a link to the Sprint policy on tethering:

Sprint's Official Tethering Policy

In there you'll find:

Examples of prohibited data uses: Sprint data services are provided solely for purposes of web surfing, sending and receiving email, photographs and other similar messaging activities, and the non-continuous streaming of videos, downloading of files or on line gaming. Our data services may not be used:... (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)...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.


So, discussion about attempting to obtain tethering functionality for free or outside the Sprint Terms of Service can't be allowed here at Android Forums.

They do have a data plan for those services, though. That would be the way to go.
