    Is there a tethering app which you can have your laptop connect using the EVO without rooting it or paying the $30 hotspot to Sprint?

    You don't even need a 3rd party app from what I'm gathering - you can tether through USB to provide internet for a device.

    Looking forward to free easy tether. Something they promised on the Pre but renigged on.

    anytime I have my laptop, its in its bag with several micro USB cables so im good to go.

    Can't Sprint tell if you're tethering unless your device is rooted? If so, I would think they could charge the $30 a month to your bill. I'm not saying they would do that, just that they could.

    The $30 is for the Wireless 8-Device Hotspot.
