Ntelos HTC Merge tethering issues
I have just gotten my HTC Merge from Ntelos wireless and I am having issues with tethering. When I start the Wifi hotspot the mobile network switches from "connected" to "turning on" and will never go any further. Has Ntelos done something to restrict this feature? Is there any way to "make" it work? If Wifi is not a possibility how about wired tethering? Here is some info from the phone
Mobile network type CDMA-EvDo rev. A

Thanks to everyone in advance.
Have you 'purchased' the hotspot feature for Ntelos?
Hi -- Just a possibility here -
I tried to access the 'hotspot' using my HTC Merge from Ntelos, and it wouldn't work either. After I turn on the hotspot, my laptop says I am 'connected', however, it is unable to access the internet.
I checked with Ntelos, and what I was told, I have to purchase the 'hotspot' feature in order to get the 'hotspot' to work. The 'hotspot' feature is $15 per month - in addition to your plan. The $15 per month can be 'added' and 'canceled' anytime, and it does not effect the plan. So, you can purchase it say for this month, cancel it for next month, and add it again say in 3 months if you want it again, and cancel it again if you don't want it.
I currently have the 'family unlimited everything plan' for $99.98 / month for 2 lines.
But, apparently 'unlimited everything' doesn't mean - unlimited everything, since you have to PAY $15 per month extra for hotspot use.
Go figure -
Not sure if this helps or not,
