    Can the 8130 be used as a tethered modem? ...if so, is it built in or does it require some extra software/hack?

    I personally would advise not doing this. It ends up being slower than dial up and barely worth the "convienence".

    If you tether with the Sprint 8130 you can reach speeds up to 700kbps on average, higher in some areas. Ive reached 1200kbps a handful of times, and that in no way is near dial up speed.

    I've got to agree that the speed (I'm on Verizon) is pretty good. On my prior 7130 I was able to view streaming video in a good coverage area in off peak hours. My 8130 seems much faster over all, too. I have to add that I would not recommend video streaming often, though, as most carriers have data capsin place.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~it may have been where I was trying. The speed was horrible.
