    Is there an app that lets you turn your android device into a mifi? I already have tethering but I want to share a connection with friends if they need it. ...

    Interesting idea. I don't know if any phone hardware would support an access point mode or not, but I can definitely see some sort of ad-hoc wireless internet sharing being possible.

    If such an app exists I would definitely be interested.

    Doesn't exist yet, or I should say doesn't exist for non-rooted phones.
    If you can root your phone then there are some apps that do what you ask.
    Now I just have to wait until you smart people root the droid ;)

    The wm wifi router is one reason I am thinking about switching back to my TP. I need to learn more about rooting.
