    If you don't have a phone as a modem plan $39.99 on your account yes. You will either 1. Get away with it (most likely) 2. Get charged $.03/kb casual data charges each time you connect 3. Get you account cancelled. Sprint is highly anal about using their phone as a modem without a plan.

    Yeah Sprint customers have a real unlimited plan. I would not worry about it.

    *EDIT* OH and Rudeboy, I had a headache for hours, thanks.

    There is an option in PDA Net that will allow incomming calls. I have had the phone ring while using it and was able to answer the call but it killed my data connection.

    Cab installer to enable BT DUN support in the Motorola Q

    I created a CAB file that automatically puts the registry keys in place necessary to enable Bluetooth DUN support on the Motorola Q. Thanks to StolenPhone from HowardForums for documenting the necessary reg keys to make this work.
    1. Install the CAB file
    2. Reboot your Q
    3. Dial ##342587 and hit Send
    4. Set the dialup option to Enabled and hit Exit
    5. Do a happy dance :)
    After you go through this process, you should be able to pair your phone to your laptop again and it should automatically install a "Standard Modem over Bluetooth". Just create a Dial-up connection using this modem with a phone number of #777. No username or password is necessary.

    Happy Tethering!
