Tether now available for all Android devices
And this is where tethering comes in. This technology allows you to use your phone/smartphone as a modem for your PC or laptop when you are in a place without internet connection. Now the Tether applicaton is available for Android and it gives you the chance to use this service with all Android phones, regardless of the version of their OS. It's true that nowadays a few handsets start to tether at launch, but for the rest, Tether may be your cure. What's even better is that it doesn't charge your bill with any "tethering plans".
Its promotional price, which will be valid until November 19, is $24.99, while after that the app will cost you $29.99. You can order Tether for Android here.

I use the free Easy Tether app and bought the license for $10, actually it was $9.99 but still, and I get full internet on my laptop where ever I want.

I downloaded the app, and got the file needed to run it, problem being.....the fact that AT&T locked down everything and won't load the file needed for Tether because it's "not associated with the Android Market"! I'm switching back to the iPhone soon anyway.

I think you just have to go to setting: then applications: and then check the unknown sources box...That should fix the problems

I have my evo 4g rooted and can use it as a tethered modem or a wireless hotspot (yes 4g speeds too) for F R E E and it's unlimited. Did I mention it's F R E E

lol taytay18, your an idiot. you need to go into settings and check the "unknown sources" box so u can install the app on your phone, and also enable usb debugging in application settings under development. Its not the phone or at%t... its you.

ATT modified their android phones so they can't load anything not market related

I wonder if that will still be a problem if your running an iphone with dual booted iOS and Android OS. That lockdown is probably a software overlay added post manufacterer...
