    So, now with froyo, usb tethering is listed as an option on my Epic. I'm kind of afraid to use it though. Will Sprint see it being used and block it/try to add extra charges to my bill?

    Sprint will automatically block the USB tethering unless you pay $30+ a month...

    However you can buy an app called "EasyTether" for $10, install the drivers on ur computer and tether using your current data plan. :)

    Good luck

    I was using easytether for a few months without my phone being rooted, so I would assume you don't have to, there is a free version you could try out before you buy it.
