    So now that the EVO's been announced... and they actually say it can be used as a hotspot for other devices... what does that mean for the rest of us? Will tethering be permitted on their other Android phones? Will EVO owners be forced to pay an extra fee for the "privilege" of using their unlimited data connections with other devices? Something to think about.

    It would be nice if Sprint would allow tethering on their Everything Data plans. Rather not break Sprint TOS to tether... but if it'll be allowed, great!

    The rumor is it will cost between $10-15 a month to tether.

    WiFi tethering working right now on my Nexus with Desire Sense UI ROM... no tethering plan whatsoever needed.... so through rooting I'm sure the EVO will be able to as well without a tethering plan (assuming Sprint blocks the feature unless you have their tethering plan... ???)

    I wonder if the tether apps for android will need to be updated to work with 4G?

    id get free pam, but wifi tether might be different. id pay 10/mo for wifi tether. with corp discount, it would only be 7.50/mo =D

    Hopefully they don't, you know, so sprint has an incentive to keep pam charges reasonable. Just sayin'
