    Hi,
    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.

    Thanks,
    Thor's Gal


    Connecting your phone to the Internet through
    a computer (Internet Pass-through)
    If you dont have a data plan for your phone or you dont have access to a Wi-Fi
    network, you can still go online on your phone by using your computers Internet
    connection.
    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 computers Internet connection. One, we recommend that you
    turn off your local networks 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.

    You can root the phone and disable sync through settings from the phone and just have a manual sync when you are around wifi.

    no need to remove it or nothing will function.
