    just recently got the samsung epic (can't believe i beat my wife to the hot new phone as she had a blackberry way before i did) and it's probably one of the best phones i've had ever. we are up around the vail/beaver creek area and are kinda hoping we can use the phone as hotspot for an extra $30 and save $120 if we can drop internet/cable. comcast kept jacking around and we were watching shows on our internet and realized that it could possibly work by tying the laptop to the tv with the hdmi cable as we've done in the past.

    but we'll see. for now, this is the greatest phone and i can't believe i held out with my blackberry this long! i mean, the blackberry was a good, durable phone although the roller ball was driving me nuts, but this is simply leaps and bounds above the blackberry!

    Welcome to the Android Forums!

    Be cautious using a phone to stream lots of movies. Some carriers, and I emphasize the word some, say that they offer unlimited data but it's not really unlimited.

    Hey I'm new here too... have an Epic and can't wait to use hotspot as well. Just wondering if there's a free way to use it. I'd like to connect myxbox and computers.
    I have decent 4G coverage here.

    Any way to unlock it, or whatever?

    I just updated to Froyo via Odin and love the increase in speed so far!

    Welcome to the Android Forums!

    To do so you'll need to root your phone and install an appropriate wireless tethering app. You'll likely find answers here:
