    So I just got my epic and I got that Pdanet tethering app. I have unlimited data, but I use it alot. by the end of the month ill probably have used about 8-9 GB. Do you think thats way too much and I'll get a notice from Sprint?
    Thanks!

    IIRC, they start giving funny looks at 5GB. Yeah, they probably won't like you too much....

    If you have 4g, it won't be calculated in your data usage. I checked my account and was surprised to find this out. I used more 4g data in one session than I have showing on my statement. Its like using wifi!

    There is a 5gb max on the 3g network so be careful. Are you paying for internet on you pc??

    yeah, but my desktop doesnt have a wireless card...and even if it did i dont think it would have enough strength to reach out router....
    i thought the 5gb was for if you were PAYING for the 30$ extra monthly tethering fee....but i could be wrong

    if you have a router, then all you need is a usb wireless adapter for your desktop. you can get a cheap one for less than $10 almost anywhere and it would be faster than tethering.

    PDA works fine for me. Just got back from Vegas and used it for my lappy the whole time. Used 4G most of the time (was moving around a lot).
