    i have the everything data plan on sprint for my evo, and im reading about the 5gb limit ---

    "Data Usage Limitation (Mobile Broadband Cards, USB Modems, Embedded Modems and Phone-As-Modem):The amount of data transmitted over our network is measured in kilobytes (KB), megabytes (MB) or gigabytes (GB). Sprint reserves the right to limit throughput speeds or amount of data transferred; and to deny, terminate, modify, disconnect or suspend service if usage either exceeds (a.) 5GB/month in total, unless specified otherwise or (b.) 300MB/month while off-network roaming. 1024KB equal 1MB. 1024MB equal 1GB."

    does this mean my unlimited is only 5gb? or is it truly unlimited for tethering and what not. i cant find anything else about it in their contract agreement

    Unlimited cell phone data usage has no limit. The ones listed in the quote above above do have a 5Gb limit.

    When you tether you are using your phone as a modem. There is usually an additional charge for that.

    No there is no 5gb cap for the EVO period.

    unless you are downloading some serious files, you will be hard pressed to even get close to 5 gigs. gf streats radio all day and just passed 2 gigs for hte month.

    your results may very.

    The EVO is unlimited except if you are roaming and using the hotspot - then it's 300 Mb for that month.

    Easy to get above 5GB with Evo. Easy. I haven't had a week yet of under 1GB, and most come in at or just under 2GB.
