PLEASE explain hotspot vs tethering etc!
I am new to Android. (one day). I know the hotspot 30 dollar fee was for up to 8 computers and all that. (no need for that for me ) But I thought you could use the evo as a router for ONE computer and that wouldn't be extra? If that is the case, could one of you please explain how to do that? I saw on my wireless connections the "Internet Sharing" icon, but it is dark (cant click on it). Thanks again guys (and gals)

According to the User Guide, you can tether, but you will need HTC Sync installed on your computer first:
Using Your Device as a Modem (Internet Sharing)
Get online with your notebook or desktop computer at any time, using your device’s data connection. For information on setting up and using the data connection, see “Getting Started With Data Services.”
Note: You need to install HTC Sync before you can use your phone as a modem.
See “HTCSync” on page 65 for details. Make sure that your device has an active connection with the Sprint 1xRTT data network or the Sprint 3G network. For more information, see “Getting Started With Data Services.”
1. Connect the device to the computer using the provided USB cable.
2. On the Connect to PC screen, select Internet sharing, and then tap Done.
When you are using your device as a modem, the USB mass storage feature is disabled, and you will not be able to use HTC Sync.
