    Works quite well. In fact during the keynote for Android 2.2 Google showed using a preproduction EVO 4G to put an iPad WiFi online. Got a good laugh.

    There is also a video of an EVO 4G owner using face time on his iPhone 4 over tethered 3G to prove that Apple wasn't being entirely honest about Facetime only working with WiFi because 3G is too slow.

    Wrecklass, to be fair, 3G on AT&T probably isn't capable of it as AT&T really is a pretty crappy provider. If it was Verizon 3G, or probably even Sprint 3G then that would be a world of difference.

    Exactly the point. Get a Wifi only iPad and an EVO 4G with tethering with unlimited bandwidth on Sprint for $30/mo. Vs AT&T with 2GB bandwidth for $25. Simple math.

    If that is Sprint's data package, it's an infinitely better deal than the native 3G capability. You're not likely to ever get a 4G connection, as Sprint's 4G is a farce anyway, but the unlimited data + tethering for $30/month is unbeatable, especially since AT&T doesn't even have unlimited data plans anymore unless you're grandfathered in.


    Can you get a smartphone with Sprint as a data-only device (without voice function)? I had a Spring phone about ten years ago, and it was the worst service I've ever had, even worse than AT&T at its worst.

    I completely agree with you.

    I agree with most of the posts above, it does work considerably well. I would like to note though that it is (among many other things) a battery killer - to the EVO.

    ^^^Makes sense.
    I never give up. Snideness and rudeness of any sort WILL be returned in kind.

    Not true. Plenty of us with i4s use Facetime via at&t 3G. Works quite acceptably. You just need to be jailbroken and use 3G Unrestrictor or My3G.

    And to be SOMEWHAT on topic, I use my i4 with MyWi to feed 3G to my iPad. I couldn't see getting a 3G iPad when I have a hot spot with my anyway.
