Re: tethering nexus 4g sprint
Downloaded the widget for free from Amazon App Store. Put the widget on the same screen as my other quick buttons (wifi, bluetooth, etc..) - it looks just like the stock ones. Hit the wifi icon and I got the blue tethering in the top left corner. Went to my laptop, connected to the phone. It works perfectly. It does not seem to support secure sites on the laptop (much like easy tether lite) but without a doubt, I am running my laptop from my Nexus S 4G with tethering. I did not have to go to Sprint and turn it on, it just worked. When I go into my phone, the tethering box was checked - but in the past when it was checked, it would tell me that I needed to contact Sprint to activate the tethering feature - not anymore.

Really not sure - just know that it is working on a stock, non-rooted Nexus S4G again... hopefully I don't get a bill for it because I do not plan on using it very much, it is just nice to know that it is there in case of emergency. Would be interested to hear if anyone else is having the same luck/experience.
