Hello, first time poster.
I bought the Evo 3D on the 1st of March and had it rooted within the first week I had it. (huzzah)
My question or discussion at hand is:
Why is it that I grandfathered an Unlimited Data plan and on my phone it says I need to pay for one?
It says on the Sprint Mobile Broadband Plan and Hotspot Addon Changes 2011 page:
There will be no change to your Mobile Hotspot add-on monthly recurring charge. Additionally, if your phone plan contains unlimited data, you will continue to enjoy unlimited data usage on your phone while on the Sprint network.
So why can't I use this feature?
Right now, I have no internet access at our new house, so tethering was my only option. I've been using EasyTether, but it doesn't work on Linux and it cuts out every once in a while for no reason (notifications are turned off). So I'm at a loss here.
I created a thread on Ubuntu Forums asking how I could get EasyTether installed on Ubuntu and make it work, but in all honesty, I shouldn't have to do THAT MUCH to get tethering to work, a feature that is built into the phone (and apparently have to pay for).
[Edit: Apparently I can't post links on my first post]
The TL;DR version of this post:
What is a decent tethering application for the HTC Evo 3D that is also compatible with Linux? I don't mind if it's USB either, but wifi would be nice (and one that doesn't block HTTPS).
