    Proclaim tethering

    I had an Lg Thrive that I used with a Sim card from a nokia e71. I tethered for internet on my kindle fire because I don't have wifi at my house. I recently bought a Samsung proclaim, and I love it, but there is no native tethering app. There are apps on google play for tethering but I need an app that isn't AC hoc, because my kindle can't pick it up. Any suggestions?

    tethering is against straight talks terms of service. if /when you are caught they can and will shut your phone off.

    You need to root your phone to get non-adhoc tethering.

    Thank you very much judge, I didn't think of that. And I've been tethering for over a year with no problems, my average data usage is about 1gb

    Tethering the fire, as with an iPad or iPod touch or such, should be fairly safe as long as you watch your usage. Tethering a laptop will use more data for surfing and such than a tablet will. The difference would be streaming audio and video onto your fire that you have stored in amazon's cloud. The "safe" limits for data usage have been 100MB a day and 2GB a month. This, however, is for their AT&T phones. Their Sprint phones are "more" unlimited, but in most places their speeds have been so slow you couldn't break large amounts of data anyway. With the proclaim being on Verizon's network, we have no idea what the data limits before getting trouble from ST will be.
