I still can't get over the fact that in America you have to pay to tether. I mean, you paid for the phone and the data plan, and if the phone can tether, how can the carrier's block that and charge you a fee for using something that is already on your phone?

Yep sound pretty dull but thats the way it is. See ATT put some app that is hidden on Adroid phone who wont allow you to tether, thefore you will have to call your carrrier and pay the MRC, that is until you root your phone and delete this app. Im from outside US and Tethering is free over here. :D

It is ridiculous, but folks keep giving, so they keep on piling. Prices that is.

They should do this for Windows Phone. We still have no way to tether... That's the only thing I miss from Android.

Actually after checking out the site it appears it is a $30 dollar one time fee, not annually as you all suggested here on PA.

Here is a link for you all to see for yourselves:

Its at the bottom of the page.
