ok got an evo and had it flashed to metro pcs so everything works to my knowledge, talk,text,mms,internet,gps, etc. Was the phone rooted then? heres the specs on the phone info: android version 2.2 baseband version 2.15.00.07.28 kernel version 188.8.131.52-g3a8614e / htc-kernel@and18-2#7 build number jiminy v2 software number 3.26.651.6 browser version webkit3.1 pri version 1.40_003 prl version 02004 eri version n/a so it was a verizon phone before the metro flash and the 3g hotspot feature doesnt seem to work. so I did some research and ended up getting the wireless tether app. but I cand get my ipod touch to connect to it, well that is it shows its connected but the ipod says it cant connect to the internet. ultimately I want an ipad to replace the ipod but for now my wife wants the ipod and while away or on a trip it would be cool to be able to use the evo as a hotspot. any ideas why it wont work, does the kernel support tethering?? is it not able to connect to an adhoc wifi? is it beacuse its flashed onto metro? all in all this is such a cool phone and am so happy with it just wonder if theres something I am just not getting. any ideas greatly appreciated Thanks!!
