The fact is you are supposed to pay for it. It's not that important to me, like I said we only use it maybe once a year so no thank you.
Also it is not only against Sprint's policy it is also Verizon, T Mobile and AT&Ts.
I just read something about Verizon cracking down on those apps to allow tethering without paying them. Yep I read the internets sometimes too
I'm just glad you were smart enough to know they are supposed to charge you, unlike a certain other moron which shall remain nameless
