700p tethered data hack sticks it to the man

Chris Ziegler

Proceed with caution, intrepid readers, but we've come across a hack for your brand new Treo 700p that supposedly makes it nigh impossible for your carrier to distinguish tethered data from on-device usage. Call us the Robin Hoods of the tech world if you will, but we know how Sprint and Verizon charge for tethering, and we don't like it one bit. Again, this involves some hackery, so turn back now if you can't stand the thought of bricking 400-odd dollars of gear that still has that new-Palm smell. Otherwise, go forth and, uh, let us know what your bill looks like next month, m'kay?

[Thanks, Matthew]
