T-Mobile Dash – Tethering

Last week, I wrote about how much of a debacle it was to tether a blackberry. Well, I decided to see how hard or easy it would be to tether my new T-Mobile Dash.

I read this post, which just seemed to come at the right time. My wi-fi keeps dropping, so I figured next time it dropped, I would test tethering. It just dropped about 20 minutes ago. I took a USB cable, connected to my phone, Activesync fired up on the computer, said I was connected to sync. On the phone, got to the Internet Sharing app, hit connect. 10 seconds later, the computer was on the net. No real extra setup for tethering. They are making it way to easy 🙂

Anyone know what kind of connections speed this gets?
I just lost my Internet at home and have to travel this weekend, so am seriously considering buying the Dash so I have Internet next week in Atlanta and Anaheim…
Thanks in advance…


In my own opinion the dash is not a very good phone compared to the Tmobile curve which can also be tethered VERY easily..

The dash is slow and outdated…I would go with an 8900.


Right but I was replying to nineowls response that was in March that nobody replied to :-). Dash had issues from day 1 though…I had 4 of them…
