Sprint Blocking Tethering Apps in the Android Market
Bad news for tethering fans. Apparently Sprint is following in AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon’s footsteps by blocking tethering apps in the Android Market. Now if you visit the Market and bring up certain tethering apps you’ll be greeted with a bright yellow disclaimer stating “This item is not available on your carrier.” We can’t help but wonder if this move has anything to do with Sprint’s recent network woes. Less tethering = less data usage = less network strain. Of course you could always sideload a tethering app from a developers website, but you didn’t hear that from us.
