    Is there a way to tether without the appropriate plan?

    Maybe using an app, or (preferably) built in?

    You need to "root" the device first, then search for the wifi tether-app, the wifi tether app is not available in the android market on at&t phones but if you do a web search you'll find the wifi tether app apk to install.

    Just as a quick side note. Wifi Tether App only creates an Ad-Hoc location, so not all devices can connect to or share your phones connection.

    Wifi tether app creates a network type that the iPhone can't join.
    So what tether app creates more than just ad-hoc?

    i was bummed to see that my wifi-only Motorola Xoom tablet will not accept AdHoc connections but the wifi tether app works great if you're rooted and have a device that will connect AdHoc.

    My Galaxy Tab 10.1 won't accept adhoc wifi connections so I have to use bluetooth tethering to my jailbroke iphone. It works fine in that configuration. Does that not work with an android phone?

    Mine is rooted with cognition rom and I'm able to use the native tethering. No tethering app. Shrug

    ^^ Yupp. Shortly after finding out that the Tethering doesn't work, I rooted with Cognition. I've been using it since my Captivate, so yeah. Kudos to DesignGears.

    I don't get what devices you guys could be tethering to. The type of wireless network the phone creates is not joinable for the vast majority of devices. Please inform

    root your phone and use titanium backup to delete tetheringmanager.apk and native tethering will work again...
