Phoenix, you probably need to take your post someplace else. We don't offer advice on how to circumvent policies or help you cheat the system.

Kindly use the SEARCH feature before you post. And if that isn't the answer you are looking for, then you can take the question elsewhere.

How can I tether for free with sprint.

Thank you.

Its not really circumventing any policies to tether. There's a tethering plan for smartphones on all carriersm. Usually 20-25 extra on top of the data plan. U can tether without it, but you run the risk of getting caught and paying a per KB fee(which is very expensive.). Just pay the extra 20 and use the tether plan

Is 65K for a month free, and that's what happens when you roam internationally and tether without the right plan.
