    Is there a good app on the market that allows this for free?

    The methods do exist

    This sites rules dictate that we are not allowed to discuss them as they violate At&t policy regarding tethering :(

    You need data to make the phone work. The 4G plan includes tethering.

    While "methods do exist," as Mr. Ed pointed out, AT&T monitors closely for that kind of activity and will boot you from an unlimited data plan if you still have one. (They let me keep mine when I "untethered", in a manner of speaking, my account from my girlfriend's a week ago.)

    They may be able to terminate your contract if you're already on a limited data plan.

    Seeing as it's already been pointed out that this violates AT&T's TOS, I'll close this thread.

    If anyone has any issues, feel free to PM me. :)
