    Both pdanet and easy tether have been confirmed to work. Honestly I would just download Visionary and get one-click temp root that way you can install wireless tether and wired tether apps. Just do a google search to find those. It takes 2 minutes to do it.

    I don't recommend using that as your main internet source

    I second that, while fast, it is NOT a good replacement for a home network. And who knows what T-Mobile will do if they start charging for tethering, may put some crazy unheard of safeguard in place.

    Question about wireless tether...First off im new to android and have had the G2 for about a week. (i work to much to have taken care of this right away) i rooted using visionary and installed wireless tether. Now the problem...speedtest just on the phone show about 3.8 adverage Mbps but when i use wireless tether says connected at 24Mbps but speed test show only about .75Mbps (speedtest.net) My bars are full and labled "H". I had att and on the nokia n97 when wireless tethered i was getting almost 2Mbps again using speedtest.net. Any ideas why its slow slow when tethered? or how to fix it???? Thanks!

    i just plugged it into my computer and selected the options to tether and wireless hotspot in the wireless and networks setting in the setting menu. havent seen any charge from tmo yet. and im guessing as long as i keep it under 5gb they wont know or care

    not sure about that. idk if there is there any way to tell the difference between using the internet on your phone and using your phone as a modem. i didnt get charged when i was using my bb, and when it was brought up on crackberry, the consensus was that as long as you stay under the 5gb cap you should be alight. even tmo cs reps were saying that as i recall.

    My main problem is the speed. its terrible when tethered using TMO built in wifi or android wifi or usb...drops below 1Mbps....

    ive never had issues with speed as long as i was using hspa or hspa+, but im not trying to download much, just light web surfing. if you need something faster you should probably just wait till you can get a good wifi signal thats open

    I've been using the wifi hotspot and no issues here. Posted a how-to on my site as well as my usage experience while on the road so you can see how much I've used it. I haven't had any warnings about using too much from T-Mobile so I'm happy about that!
