Rumor Touch and tethering

Rumor Touch and tethering.  

 

I have four phones on my plan and two of them have PAM as part of the plan.  How do I tether a Rumor Touch?

    Unfortunately the Rumor Touch doesn't support PAM.

    Thank you.   Are there any new phones that do.  My plan is a very old free and clear plan so I am limited on the phones I can purchase.

    Hello, The only ones I see on Sprint.com is the LG Lotus and Samsung Rant that wouldn't require you to change your plan.

    I really appreciate your help.  my plan is 9 years old and I have been with sprint for 12 or 13 years.  If I go with a everything data family 1500 minute plan is is true that all mobile to mobile (not just sprint) is included.  And if I do that can I use a phone as unlimited modem?

    On the everything data plans, yes all mobile to mobile is free and that is any carrier.  Only calls to Landline, voicemail and 800-888-866-877 numbers will be taken out of your bucket of minutes. I don't believe you would be able to keep PAM as that is no longer offered and wouldn't carry over. But we do have phones that have mobile hot spots and that plan is 29.99 and can connect 5 to 8 devices and it is unlimited 3G/4G. If you have any other questions, please let us know.

    Thanks again for the information.  Because two of my plans specifically state that they include PAM with no limitations (I also have an email from e-care stating the same) can I assume that I would be safe using my phone as a modem when I am out of town.  I only ask because I am going out of town in a few weeks and would like internet access during that time.  I would change my plan but it appears that Sprint does not have anything that is close to what I am paying.  Thank you,  Kerry
