T-Mobile comes out officially to clarify things regarding the G2
Yesterday, news broke out that dished up some hopeful information for T-Mobile G2 owners with notion of a software update coming out soon that would bring Wi-Fi calling and tethering support. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like it'll be coming out today, or any time in the foreseeable future, after T-Mobile officially came out with a statement regarding the matter.

They said, “Wi-Fi Calling and tethering/Wi-Fi sharing are not currently supported on the T-Mobile G2. T-Mobile knows these features are important to consumers and we're working to deliver them to G2 users in the future. We have nothing further to announce at this time.”

Although it means that we won't be seeing it in the near term, it appears as though they'll be getting it out to users nonetheless – but now the only question that remains is exactly when it'll be available. Still, T-Mobile G2 owners still have a lot of be happy about since the Android powered smartphone packs HSPA+ connectivity.

And even though the G2 is running Android 2.2 Froyo, which has native support for mobile hotspot, T-Mobile is yet content on opening up the flood gates for it.

Sigh, welcome tiered data plan soon..... These US carriers are damn too greedy and stingy on tethering datas... most other countries are giving out tethering option with data plans and even cheaper

T-mobile USA allows tethering without an extra fee. All this article is saying is that the G2 doesn't support tethering for now. Now if your comment was directed at AT&T then I would agree wholeheartedly.
