If you thought that Sprint had no problem with its users installing tethering apps on their phones, it looks like times have changed. A few months ago, AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon blocked their users from downloading tethering apps via the Android Market, leaving Sprint as the only carrier without the restriction. But recently, a number of Sprint subscribers noticed that the carrier has finally put the restrictions in place.
While the apps still work now (which, by the way, are still sideloadable onto your Android phones) nobody knows for how long. While this may help curb network issues that it is currently facing, I don’t think making it harder for people to tether is the right way to go about it.
