phone as modem
im a sprint/nextel customer and have a samsung instinct. i subscribe to the 'everything unlimited' plan, but was informed that i cant use my phone as a modem--which various sites say used to work. i can, however, buy their air card and get access for an additional 40 bucks a month--seems kinda silly to me when i pay for unlimited everything.
anyway to hack my phone?
my buddy apparently has an app for his iphone allowing him to set it next to any computer and be on line. im considering paying the early termination fee and switching to another carrier, as the 40/mo not paid for an air card savings would recoup my early term fee.
do any of you use phone as modem? how well does it work?
which carrier/phone? any way to get around my 'block,' as the phone auto shuts down when plugged to a pc?
