    Well as some of you may or may not know, I'm in school, and I do online school. Well today I have midterms, and right before I'm going to submit, my comcast internet goes out. !@$%@$%#@$%@!#%@!#$!@#$!@#$
    !@#$!@#$
    !@#$!@


    !@#$!@#$

    !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    COMCAST@#$@#$


    Anyways, no biggie (aside from comcast taking $100/mo from me and this is the service I get? They are gonna hear it!)

    I flip on 4G, flip on wifi tether for root users, and within 2 minutes I post my midterm paper, and I'm good to go.

    <3 EVO.

    In all fairness, I could have done this with my EPIC too, or any Android phone, but the EVO is just bad ass because it has a kickstand to do the gangster lean while I tether. :D

    No, I am adding tidbits here and there.

    I'll be starting my Epic Review soon. I'm going to run through a little bit more now that 2.2 is out, and it's an even playing field.

    I always had problems with Comcast and Broadstripe. FiOS is the shiznit though.

    All phones with the feature will be able to do it...

    I've let friends use my connection on their iPods a few times :)

    I was referring to the EVO, being an HTC phone, able to do wireless tethering (or wirless hotspot as we can also call it) since the poster specifically mentioned HTC devices, and I am not sure if ALL current devices fall under that category :)

    I'm fairly certain all phones with 2.2 have the capability, though your carrier may disable it...

    Same thing saved me today. I got to keep working because of the Evo. Thank you, Sprint and HTC.

    Sorry that really made me laugh. I just imagined the phone with a black and white pinstripe cover.
