    Default Froyo Kill USB tether ?

    I have had USB tethering working over 4G since day 1 that I have had my EVO. Updated to the leaked froyo .3 version and BLAM ! no 4G tethering. I thought it was free ?


    I know about pdanet and like but would rather not go that route....


    anyone else lose their tether ?

    It was never free, 4G tethering was an "oopsie" by Sprint/HTC and was patched.

    Yea until then were waiting on that 2.2 root !

    I'd almost rather flash back to 2.1 to get my tether back.

    Until then, PDAnet has me covered for a few days

    I thought I read reports that Froyo broke PDANet and other USB tethering apps too.

    I guess it does, just installed it and it's working great! I hadn't bothered to try it since I read somewhere else that it didn't work.

    Yes. It's a violation of your contract. Sprint wants that extra $30 a month. It's too steep for me. Maybe $10.

    They switch out your Evo for an iPhone.

    They can cut you off if you use to much data. I've known a few idiots who were tethering and torrenting movies daily off 3G data. Sprint shut them down and canceled their service.

    I agree, $10 a month for a single USB tether is reasonable. But then again, you can bridge the connection with ICS and use a wireless router

    Unless you want to VPN anywhere - it doesn't allow SSL ports.

    Initially I was under the impression that the $10 was for hard-wired USB tethering, and the $30 for WiFi - but I was quickly shown how naive that was.

    I don't remember where I read it, but I remember 4G usb tethering was supposed to be allowed. I guess I read wrong. This was before the EVO was released so I'm guessing that changed quick. I was under that impression too.

    I was just loving the fact I could turn on 4G and then hit "usb tethering" on the phone when it popped up and it just worked. PDAnet works, but it tends to cut off alot and sometimes does not want to connect even though your settings are right.
