Re: Using the Cliq as a modem

Turns out T-Mobile is tether friendly. I just checked out my corporate agreement and tethering is specifically allowed. Very cool, no need for cloak and dagger. On top of that, TMo is going to be the first carrier with HSPA 7.2 which means 3G bandwidth will be automatically upgraded to 7Mbps and eventually to 21Mbps (in 2010). This is truly ground-breaking and game-changing capability.  http://androidandme.com/2009/11/carriers/t-mobile-news/t-mobile-hspa-7-2-still-on-track-for-2009/

tk54 where did this info come from.

T-Mobile DOES NOT support tethering. This is why the terhering app that WAS on the Market for ROOT users was removed.

Please do not offer BAD information to people.

T-MOBILE DOES NOT SUPPORT TETHERING

He did say he checked out his Corporate agreement, so he may be bound by different rules.

Hes on T-Mobile,

The T-Mobile agreement is the same in all markets. T-Mobile does not SUPPORT tethering. Doesnt mean it cant be done, as I had a G1 that I tethered with. BUT if they find out they can cancel your contract and charge you a boatload of fees for cancellation.

I would like to distingush between four different concepts at work here.

1. The carrier "supports" tethering

    This means that they allow it and they'll help you make it work.

    Depending on your rate plan, they may charge extra for this.

2. The carrier "allows" tethering

    This means they may not "support" (help you make it work), but they wont' terminate your service if they catch you doing it.

3. The carrier neither supports nor allows tethering, but you can make it work on your device.

4. The carrier doesn't support it and you can't make it work on your device.

Clearly #1 is ideal, but I'll settle for #3.

Also, it may be possible that the above are different for different customers. For example, a specific corporate rate plan may allow and support teghering, while the "rack" carrier plan may not.

The T_Mobile Corporate Rate plans do not support / allow tethering. The explination we got from our rep was if you want internet by the Air Card we sell. This is WHY T-Mobile does not support / allow tethering. They want you to buy an air card, and data plan.

Jason,

As I mentioned before, our corporate agreement specifically allows tethering. At my request, the person in charge of our account reviewed the contract and pointed out where it very clearly states we have unlimited tethering rights. It describes allowed usage as "modem link" and "internet connection sharing". I don't know how much more clearly that can be stated. Given that our contract with TMo is 6 years old, it certainly pre-dates 3G connectivity but we have received no addendums or further clarifications. Several of our employees have upgraded their handsets to take advantage of the 3G bandwidth which was just rolled-out in my area only a month ago. This is an important feature in our cell service plan and any attempt by TMo to remove or charge extra would damage our relationship with them.

When you consider the intent of our tethering usage, I have a difficult time treating PC usage and handset usage differently. With these new 3G handsets, you can accomplish almost everything that a PC can. And with TMo's roll-out of HSPDA  bandwidth ranging from 7.2 MBps to 22 MBps, there is more than enough capacity to accommodate multiple, massive simultaneous requests.

Your Agreement with T-Mo isnt everyones. So to clarify once more.

YOUR agreement with T-mo allows it.

T-Mobile no longer supports ANY kind of tethering. People take what they read in forums as Law sometimes, and they need to be careful as all current T-Mobile contracts DO NOT allow tethering

Can you clarify where you get your information? Are you a TMo rep?
