In case anyone needs to use their phone as a modem, try EasyTether! (LOL, no I don't work for them). I'm excited that I can use my phone as a modem now and not deal with the Sprint HotSpot. It actually works with an Evo. I does not have the same obvious advantage of being a high-speed wifi hotspot that Sprint touts--it's not. But if all you need is a modem, that is USB tethered to your laptop or netbook, this seems to work.
