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
Wow, he was wrong. Big deal. Doesn't justify you calling him names for the next few days. And wireless tethering is what costs money. Wired tethering can still be done for free on Android phones. But it's probably way too much tweaking for you Apple users. With USB Debug mode available on all Android phones, it's very difficult for the carriers to block it.

Oh and it takes about 5 minutes and some common sense to get wireless tethering working for free.

Good luck with that on the iPhone. First you need a jailbreak, then you typically have to pay for the app on the jailbreak Cydia store. Not to mention the fact that there's no untethered jailbreak for iOS5.1 yet.
