    i have the newest firmware and everything is fine and i did read the "how to's" before posting this. i'm on sprint and i've got unlimited everything. i tried the "internet sharing" thing when i plugged it in to my computer (all htc sync software and drivers installed) and i kept getting a data call failure so i thought sprint disabled that feature. i was messing with the wifi on my phone and i connected to my router, then when i plugged it in i tried the "internet sharing" option again this time it worked. but, as in the "how to" it doesn't have the little 3g symbol beside the clock. all it has it the wifi symbol.

    so, is my pc connected to the internet via my phones internet or my home internet?

    ps. wireless card on pc is broke which is why i bothered to try this.

    I would almost totally bet that it connected to your wifi via your phone. When you turn the wifi on on your phone it shuts the sprint networking off and only uses the wifi for all data. If you try to go to sprint tv while using wifi, you'll realize this (that's how I found out).
