    Gophone accounts do not allow for tethering. You will need an contract account with hot spot plan for that service. You own data having bought the 500 mb, but AT&T does have restrictions on the way the data can be used. One restiction is tethering.

    I tried on my gsII with the gophone acount and can't tether either.

    Hi, Cattledog. We meet again. Lol.

    Yes, so its keeps telling me. Lol
    I really don't need to, just wanted to see if I could. I can and do use my phone for any internet, I need, when away from home and wifi.
    I am enjoying my phone. Thanks.

    Shoot. Root you're phone, then download barnacle off of 4 shared. Works flawlessly.

    You will most likly find if you have
    a baged phone (phone supplied
    by network) they will place their
    own tethering restrictions.

    Unfortunately the Barnacle doesn't work for the latest ICS SPH-D710.FE16_CL579416 ROM.
