How to tether your HTC EVO

HTC EvoAndroid phone tethering is a great way to make the most out of your phone. Tethering an HTC EVO with 4G speed is one of the easiest and coolest things you can do with the new gadget. Today I will explain the steps and how to tether your HTC EVO and use it for multiple connections.

This guide is specifically marked for tethering your HTC EVO, but can be applied to several other Android phones. In this guide I will show you how to take your phone, use it as an Internet connection, and power your computer, laptop, or any device of your choosing. It is easy and can save you a few bucks if you don’t want to pay the extra costs of a modem and a 4G connection.

A simple definition of tethering is taking your android phone, connecting it to your laptop or desktop via USB or Bluetooth, and using its 4G or 3G connection to go online, surf the Internet, and do whatever you want with an Internet connection.

How to thether your Sprint HTC EVO

Step 1 – Go to Android Marketplace and search for the PdaNet application. Download it. The basic PdaNet does not allow you to access secure websites while your device is tethered. The paid PdaNet app will allow you to do that.

Step 2 – On whatever device you wish to connect to your HTC EVO, visit the PdaNet website, http://www.junefabrics.com/android/download.php and download the companion piece.

Step 3 – Tap the Menu circle, tap Settings, tap Applications, and then tap Development. Check the box that says “USB Debugging.” A screen will pop up asking you if you want to allow USB Debugging. Tap OK. Turn this off whenever you are done tethering your devices.

Step 4 – Connect your HTC EVO to the device you wish to tether using the USB cable. Go into your apps and run the PdaNet application. Select the “Enable USB Tether” option from the main screen. There is also a Bluetooth option here if you wish to connect the devices using Bluetooth. You’re almost there!

Step 5 – On the connected device find the icon for the PdaNet companion piece you installed earlier. Click on the icon with the right side of your mouse and choose “connect.”

Your devices should be tethered and working like a well oiled machine. It is really that easy. Tether away and enjoy!
