I copied this from the user manual. If I root the phone and remove HTC Sync because of the battery hogging, is there another app that will allow me to do this? It may be a while before I can buy a wireless router for the house.
Connecting your phone to the Internet through
a computer (Internet Pass-through)
If you don’t have a data plan for your phone or you don’t have access to a Wi-Fi
network, you can still go online on your phone by using your computer’s Internet
Before you can use your computer as a modem, be sure to install HTC Sync on your
computer first. To find out how to install HTC Sync, see “Synchronizing with your
computer” in the Accounts and sync chapter.
Make sure your computer is connected to the Internet.
Two things to check for your computer’s Internet connection. One, we recommend that you
turn off your local network’s firewall. Two, if your computer connects to the Internet via PPP
(e.g. Dial UP, xDSL, or VPN), Internet Pass-through will only support TCP protocol.
2. Connect the phone to the computer using the provided USB cable.
3. On the Connect to PC screen, select Internet Pass-through, and then tap Done.
4. On the message window, tap OK.
