I've been very happily using my wifi hotspot to access the internet on my computer at work on my nexus one for quite some time. Yesterday, Tmo blocked my screen with an upsell ad requesting that I enroll in their mobile hotspot service for $15 a month. I called, thinking that my unlimited android plan with free hotspot would permit me to use the tethering\hotspot capability of my phone without charge. I was told that the hotspot functionality was for "official TMO. hotspots, like in the airport" and not for using my phone to hook up my laptop to the net. They said that I waqs NEVER permitted to use this but their technology only recently found a way to block this.
I'm trying out an app called SVTP hotspot lite that seems to work....although only on firefox not chrome.
I may buy it, but want to research my other choices.
What options do I have?
thanks in advance
