Question about Cell Phones
I have had Sprint for over 10 years and have seen the TOS change back and forth. If your phone has a phone as modem option try it, if it connects then it will tether if not then sprint has your account locked against tethering. But don’t give up hope I have an HTC 6800 with a tether plan for work, but a couple of weeks ago I tried my personal phone an LG 550 with the modem option and it is now working. I used Bluetooth which limits the speed but it did work. So give it a try and if not now perhaps later on it will work. Good Luck

Thanks for using FixYa. When you sign up for SERO, you must commit to a 2 year contract. There are three tiers of SERO available, the difference being the number of monthly anytime minutes available and, of course, price. As mentioned, 500 minutes is $30, while 1250 and 2500 minute plans are $49.99 and $99.99, respectively.
So how do you sign up for SERO? Well, if you are not currently a Sprint customer, the process is quite simple: -1) You'll need the email address of a Sprint employee. Since the sign up process occurs on a web form, you don't actually need to know the employee personally. The best way to get an email address is to visit your local Sprint Store, talk it up with an employee, and ask for his or her business card. Alternatively, you can visit this website for a list of Sprint email addresses. I don't recommend the second method because it's possible these email addresses could be blacklisted on the SERO form, if they aren't already.
2) Next, visit the SERO Website and follow the instructions on the page to sign up. The process is pretty straightforward.
And that's it. Just wait for your phone to arrive in the mail, and you're good to go.
Now, if you are already a Sprint customer, getting SERO is not so easy if you want to keep your phone number. Sprint has a policy against making a regular account into a SERO account. You can beg the customer service person to convert your account, but most people are unsuccessful in doing so. You also can't port a current Sprint phone number to a SERO account.
However, if you sign up for a Cingular Go Phone, you can transfer your old Sprint Number to the Go Phone. After the number is transferred, cancel your old Sprint account. Then sign up for SERO as described above. When you get your new Sprint phone in the mail, activate it and port the number from your Go Phone to your new Sprint Phone. And voila! You now have a SERO account and your old Sprint phone number.
Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.
