    You're looking for advice/support rather than offering a Tip or Trick, so I moved your question to the Support and Troubleshooting area for you. ;)

    i think over at XDA they are working on this via kernel, but for an easy $10 "easytether" does a great job, i went that route cause I need to go to htts sites, the free version is fine if you dont need to go into secure site.

    are you sure this method is not the charged sprint version for tethering and will be nailed for "phone as modem" charges.

    I know pdanet/easytethering will bypass the phone as modem charge.

    Using easy tether. Has worked great for the time ive had it. Know a geek using pda also. I know that easy tether is not ROOTED. If you use a rooted program they will cancel your warranty on your phone. the easy tether site does give info alrhough it took me hours to find the one paragraph i needed.
    I M P O R T A N T: do not use tether to pc unless you pay the high dollar premium for it.
    Instead - use charge only. And make sure debugging is on.

    Also i notified my carrier to place a block on anything that would incur additional premium charges.
    I route my home computer and search and game to my hearts content, even watch some tv. Im usins sprint htc evo.
