Well, I’ve gone a little Palm Pre crazy over the weekend, using it as my new WiFi Hotspot. It turns out the My Tether app I used yesterday also has USB tethering capabilities.
To my surprise, the USB tethering worked beautifully, you can read up on how to tether your Palm Pre as a USB Modem here.
P.S. I got the paid-version of the My Tether. Shout out to Raja for the wonderful app, Sprint should really consider adding app to their default apps, that would be a HUGE advantage over the iPhone.
Sprint has secretly took out the USB Modem function couple weeks ago but do not worry as My Tether can do this for you. I don’t think they realize that this very function of being able to use the Palm Pre as a USB Modem will help them more in the long run rather than hurt them. Personally, I think if Palm Pre allows it, they will get more favorable ratings on the phone, nevermind make all the early-adaptors like me very happy. I don’t know why they would not allow it, especially since my previous Sprint Blackberry 8830 did it too.
