    I haven't used it (mobile hotspot is included in my plan), but PDANet says it will. Might be worth a shot.

    I have been searching myself and cant find one. Sprint likes to block the ones that work.

    If you search around here and XDA, you will see some links to versions of Wi-Fi tether that some people have had limited success with. However, I pretty much tried them all with no luck. Did get it to connect for a bit, then would stop.

    So, I am rooted now with the Whompasaurus ROM and it has working Wi-Fi tether built in. Several others have it as well. Very easy to root using the toolkit you can download.
