    Sprint Phone as Mobile Hotspot?

    I have several different Boost Mobile accounts, using both IDEN and CDMA phones. I also have a new Sprint HTC Touch Pro that I've never used. Assuming that I was able to activate my Touch Pro on one of my existing Boost accounts, I was wondering if anyone has successfully used it or similar phone as a mobile 3G Hotspot utilizing one of the available Win Mobile apps? I would only need to use it on occasion, as I already have a Clearwire 4G mobile hotspot device. Would just be convenient to be able to access the net on my Android tablet, without having to carry around a separate hotspot device which is bigger than my existing phones.

    I don't think I would be using much 3G data, as most of the time, it would just be used for email and to sync my Google calendar/contacts on my Touch Pro, or for light web browsing on my tablet. Thanks for your help!

    Yep, using mine right now on the road.
    Left Virgin for Helio and all it had to offer... Only to get "acquired" back to virgin again... slowly loosing everything I switched for. Then came a light at the end of the tunnel when we got "acquired" yet again by sprint... sadly they brought us nothing and took from us everything, so as the ship sank I stayed aboard and then on the 23rd I quickly ported over to boost... and I'm the happiest I've ever been.

    RIP HELIO... you were set-up to fail but it was fun while it lasted.

    Recommendations?

    Any recommendations on which WM app is best suited for use as a WiFi mobile hotspot? I've found WMWifiRouter, WalkingHotSpot, and PdaNet so far, but know nada about any of them?

    Also, I saw a post on the forums mentioning Sprint2Boost service. Does anyone have any experience with them?

    ^heh, I use the last free version of WMWifiRouter on occasion when I "need" wifi, but I know DT could walk you through the basic setup to have WinMo create your hotspot for you- thereby eliminating the need for a program, I would have gone that way but I was feeling lazy at the time and I hardly use it anyway.
