    i almost wish i didn't update. i didn't use the hotspot, but the usb tether.

    that's just crappy that they disabled that service

    So just to be 100% clear, if I update to 2.2, I will be able to use easy tether or any other usb internet sharing service? has anyone tried this?

    cool nvm lol :)

    let me rephrase.....

    pdanet does work on 2.2

    i was referring to the free internet sharing that was on 2.1 when htc sync was installed. it irks me that they removed the wired shared internet feature.

    i don't know if it's a sprint network thing or something on my end, but everything seems uber slow tonight when i tethered with pda net.

    off to try easytether

    Thats the problem though the usb tether stuff just won't work with the ipad. Which is pretty much all we use the wifi hotspot for.

    i was pulling twice these numbers both up and down on 2.1
