    Probably something at your end. I just downloaded it - no problems.

    it's not wireless, but at least we don't have to pay for PDANet or anything like that if we want to tether via USB:

    Tethered Mode allows your computer to obtain an
    external data connection by using the device

    Usb tethering is included but the wireless hotspot is $30 monthly.
    Also check out "PDANet" in the Market.

    Well, seeing as though that's in the actual user guide, I think it's safe to assume that Sprint (who released it) and Samsung (who created it) have allowed it to be as there are instructions on how to use it.

    Downloaded fine for me. Wow, 264 pages long.

    speaking from experience (multiple sprint device owner), don't count on it being available on the device itself just because it is in the manual.

    edit: i'd loved to be proved wrong, though.

    fyi, just cracked opened the user manual that came with the phone itself, and there is nothing about tethering or hotspot. this is not high priority for me right now, so i'm not going to try it out on the phone just yet. just so you know.

    I was told by Sprint when the Evo came out that the hotspot can be started and stopped whenever you want - for example, if you are out of town for 3 days and want to use it for laptops while travelling you would only pay for those 3 days, so the cost is prorated. I think it is a fabulous thing to have - I wouldn't want to pay it all the time, but if you want it occasionally it isn't bad.

    Is it just me getting a 404 error, or is the link in the OP actually dead?

    So, where can we find the manual, then? I've searched around and haven't found it.
