    there are countless apps that allow you to do this on the market just search for it. =)

    ill warn you against using it too much though as acouple of members have gotten msgs from straight talk saying that iff they dont cut down on there data usage there service will be terminated... (DroidHost) XD

    its not a full ban on internet, they ( I assume) cap your activity per day or the month,  im trying to figure out how well we are actually monitored

    They do watch it and some people have got there service terminated.... but they were using it a ton.

       If your just gonna use the hot spot for email, normal browsing and a you tube video here and there, you will be fine. If you plan on using the hot spot as your primary internet at your house and plan on downloading tons of stuff and watching videos all day, then you will get caught and they will cancel your service.

    Been doing it for almost a year now my wife takes online classes and we watch netflix every night and they have never said a word. They gotta be sharing with lots of other people and maybe they have away of knowing that. Idk but we do it everyday and it our only internet con. ?

    Probably very well. I'm sure they have their ways of sneaking stuiff in. CarrierIQ comes to mind. Of course they say they aren't monitoring us but I like to be more realistic about it

    There is  one that works called 'WiFi Tether for Root Users' but I had a bad experience with it. It tethered with one tap (well 2 actually, one to open the app and one to tether) BUT... everytime I used it, and after I un-tethered, I'd get an error on wifi and have to reboot to use wifi again. Just a heads up
