    You will need to gain root access to your phone and then you can install wireless tethering apps from Market.

    Here's the guide for rooting your phone:

    Beware that once you have wireless tethering set up and running, this phone will get very hot. I wouldn't recommend leaving it on for longer than 20 or 30 minutes at a time. The slow Metro 3G speeds don't help much either.
