    For folks who have updated to Froyo (2.2) can you do wired tethering for free ? I travel on occasion (2 or 3 times a year) and this would be a useful feature.

    See the market. PDAnet will fix you up. Works very well indeed. Been using it for years on platforms prior to android.

    unlike 2.1, 2.2 locks it down. you will need to download a 3rd party app. pdanet seems to work the best. some claim easytether, but i can't get it to work on XP.

    the free version will work for two weeks, after that time, it will block https sights unless you buy the full version

    Does sprint charge for wired tethering when using a 3rd party app ?

    no.

    i do think that sprint can tell and throttles down the speed when using pdanet. they don't charge or block it tho

    If Sprint locks it down, what happens when I check the box next to usb tethering in my settings (I've not tried it)?
