That's actually not bad considering the fact that all companies charge $60 for an aircard.

I read somewhere that sprint said the simultaneous voice-data feature was in testing and could be possible with 4g service. Also that it would be possible regardless of sprints testing via third party VOIP. I personally dont find the feature necessary but for those desperate enough for it, there will be ways.

i can see a need for the hot spot feature because i have a sprint air card and the router would be better because it would let me power my laptop and pc and ps3 and other peoples phones at once instead of a solitary air card

Well I was hoping something cheaper, if I move to Sprint from Verizon my bill want change being there data is including and I'm already paying that price for my data plan so I'm OK with it. As long as WiMax is available in my area.

I dont know about pay an additional $30 for the feature, but the good thing is tht we can add it at anytime...i hope!! by the way, any1 tht is a premier customer might not want to know how much this phone REALLY is cause we're gonna get $75 off the original price of the phone after being a yr into ur contract which, in my case, would make me wait a while to upgrade to this phone without breaking the bank

The only reason Verizon made the Mobile Hotspot feature free is because the Pre and Pixi were not selling. At all. With a high demand handset like the EVO will be, there would be no reason for Sprint to make it free.

Most People don't even know what rooting a phone is. Therefore people like you and me will be saving 30 dollars a month, compared to the average person, who pays for this. I'm using my hd2 to write this, which allows me to give free internet sharing to anyone of my choice (on t-mobile's network)
