Sprint to OFFICIALLY block tethering in 2010!
Effective in 2010 (a little less than two months to you and me) Sprint has announced they will officially block tethering on all smartphone devices. For those of you unsure what tethering is, it's a way to connect your laptop to the internet by routing the connection through your cell phone. This surprise announcement from Sprint is not winning many friends, and certainly not helping to increase their chances of retaining customers. This change has been confirmed by Sprint executive David Owens.
