    "We do not support" is different than "it won't be allowed."
    The former has been Sprint's official position for quite a while.
    Yet they have not disabled casual use of one's phone as a modem.

    The operative word is "casual."

    While checking/sending e-mail, quick searches, etc. would probably
    keep you under the radar, surfing might be enough to draw attention.

    Now? Sprint stopped supporting that about 6 months after Vision was
    launched.

    True, but only a couple of months ago, Sprint was offering data plan
    add-ons, to allow phones to be used as modems. Have they changed
    their tune again???

    Re: phone as modem

    First off, quit with the html posting ...

    Next, no software needed. Just need to download the modem driver for your
    phone and set up a new DUN, with #777 as the number, leaving the user name
    and password fields empty.

    Offering plans to cover the usage does *not* mean Sprint will provide
    support for it. As of the last update I had, Sprint does not support
    this.

    *Support*. As has already been stated, that is not the same as "allow".

    Huh?

    If Sprint offers a plan that includes tethering, how can they not support it?

    That makes absolutely no sense.
