    Just started my "Tether" trial for 7 days.
    I am not paying $49.99 for an app.
    Any FREE alternatives?
    Please no smart remarks.
    Thank you.

    There are no free tethering options on Sprint.

    The Tether application goes on sale quite frequently. You might watch out for sales.

    Wait for Tether to go on sale. I got it for $20. Worth every cent, especially connected to an international plan.

    No quite sure about the need for a tether app. Whats wrong about using DM6 for this purpose? Works like a charm on my 9700 TMobile, even in Germany on O2. Let me know if you need help in setting it up...

    Think they are referring to the upcoming Dakota/Montana, although it won't do any good now.

    DM lets you do it, but your carrier will charge you unless you are on TMobile. When the wireless hot spot capability is included, carriers will charge for that as well. VZW charges for both on Android and iOS as well. WiFi hot spot costs $20 per month on both. On Android you have to root and on iOS you have to jailbreak if you want the hot spot for free. Not sure what will be needed to get it free on BB?

    Most people I know buy Tether half off and use it.
