Sprint blocks users from using phone as a modem

Seems that Sprint has further raised the ire of its subscribers by blocking the ability to tether cellphones as a modem. This is something new as there was no announcement from Sprint concerning the blockage, leaving long time subscribers who have always done so in a state of disbelief at the way they were treated. According to Sprint, this was done in order to reduce the minutes to 900 rather than the users current Unlimited Plan, where the official workaround is to pay a separate monthly fee for mobile broadband.
