    How long before I have to start paying to use my MyTouch 4g as a wireless HotSpot?

    I thought the free bit was supposed to be up earlier this month, yet I still have the ability to use the MT4G as a hotspot for free.

    That would suck but as far as I know, that feature is free as long as TMObile doesn't turn into AT Freaking T :)

    They will charge you for using the hotspot depending on how much data you are using with it. I have used it several times to help out my buddies phones or to use my zune since the battery life on that is 10x better. I also dont keep it on. Once im done its done. Max 10 minutes at a time.

    Keep an eye on your bill they are and im sure will charge for the use of it.

    They'll charge you even if you have the unlimited data plan? that doesn't make sense... but again, I guess they could do whatever they want :)

    I'm surprised that they haven't began charging yet. I thought they would have kicked the fees in shortly after the phones release. =D

    It's the first time in 3 years that I used so much data, within the first couple weeks of owning mytouch 4g, I have used over 3GB. I believe it's mostly streaming music from Pandora plus some hotspot used :)

    Anyone having problems setting up a hotspot? I was trying to connect a friend's old Windows XP to it. It shows up on the network list but I can't connect to it. Does something on my account need to be enabled? Are there any specific settings? I tried unsecured, WEP, etc.

    Nevermind, got it to work as an unsecured connection. Anyone on any other settings?
