you know, without rooting and using the one that comes built in from being froyo without using a carrier, you're in luck. this phone will do it. download the "quick settings" app from the market (the green gear icon one) open it and press menu>customize move the wifi hotspot up to be in the visible settings turn it on. *note-you cannot turn it on in settings in the phone but once its on using quick settings, you can go into settings and set up a password for your network. found this by accident yesterday. *edit* removed part about evo as it does not work. Please for the love of Pete read this post before asking a question. This is not about USB tethering, this not about any other phone, this is not for people who can't follow simple instructions apparently and this is not my responsibility. I posted this to help people who want to WIFI TETHER. I'm not trying to be rude but at least attempt to read the first post and some of the thread before asking something. this will not work with the update pushed on 3/20. do not accept the update if you dont want to lose this function. if you do, you can go here to revert to an older version and get it back.
