    Anyone know what happened to wireless tether? I don't see it on the market anymore. I still have it on my phone and saved in titanium backup but I was just wondering. I use it constantly and don't know what I'd do if I ever lost it.

    Yeah they said that they took all the tethering apps off the market. I forgot the reason why but its around here somewhere. I would love if someone posted a .apk for it.

    All of the carriers had Google remove it. Its illegal to use. Search for it on Google.

    They removed it because it broke terms of service for some carriers, not to mention people abused the out of it.

    4shared has it, I just reinstalled it today so I could prove something to my dad ;)

    If you do choose to post the .apk be sure to host it off site :)

    So does that mean it is not safe to use? Will Verizon catch you using it? or what.

    Its likely they won't catch you. Just use it sparingly. The fines are high if you get caught
