    contact your service provider and ask them to add to your plan..
    i dont think anyone is going to tell you how to get tethering services for free at this point.

    $20/month if I remember correctly. There is still a way to get "free" tethering, but VZW can see it now. As long as you tether responsibly and don't exceed your 5 GB data cap, then there is no problem with the occasional free tether. It's your data, use it how you like.

    To find this "free" tethering, it's just a simple google search. Enjoy root!

    Go to Market, download Wireless Tether For Root Users. Turns internet connection on phone into a 3G hotspot for up to 5 devices.

    And it's free.
