why do you have to be subscribed to mobile hotspot to use USB tethering? i dont want to use the phone as a hotspot only as a modem. on the old backberry i have it didnt cost any xtra to use usb tethering
The Phone as Modem option for the EVO cost $29.99. It does not matter if you use the EVO tethered or wirelessly as a hotspot. If you are using the phone to connect to internet through a computer, the $29.99 price will be charged onto the account. I hope this helps explain the charge a bit.
