    Bluetooth and WiFi, yes. Depending on your phone, if it creates an infrastructure access point, yes it is possible. If it is an ad-hoc point, the TF has to be rooted to connect to it.

    Bluetooth, some phones do not play nice with the TF due to what profiles are supported for data transfer.

    The other side of it is that some carriers (mainly US based ones) will not allow you to tether unless you pay for a tethering plan, or you have to root your phone to do it, but then if you get caught the carrier could change your plan and bill you for tethering.

    What type of phone do you have and I will see what I can dig up.

    It looks like this was a free promotion on this phone through May of 2011. It appears to now be $20 on your plan to tether, but you an just enable the hotspot if you have tethering and then connect your TF via WiFi.

    If not, it has successfully been done by rooting the HTC and then installing WiFi tether app (must be rooted for this app to work) but I will say you want to make sure you do not use lots of data with the tethering because big red will add the tethering to your plan if they believe you are using it to tether.

    I tethered my TF to my LG Optimus T as soon as I got it. Under "Wireless and Networks" settings on the phone there is a "Tethering and Portable Hotspot" section. There is a setup section there, follow the instructions and make up a password. You can use the phone as a wireless modem for up to 5 devices.

    Hello,

    I was wondering if anyone could tell me how to use my data plan from my phone (HTC Sensation 4G) to my Transformer without having to pay some stupid hotspot fee to tmobile haha.

    Thanks!

    Andy, I am on tmobile and tether to my mytouch 4g's data. Easily connects to the wifi hotspot created by the phone, and is totally free of charge. Now keep in mind that i dont do this very frequently, only when my home internet is down or im somewhere without wifi for some light surfing. So i dont use a whole lot of bandwidth while tethered, not sure if that matters. Whats the worst thatcan happen? They say "stop"?
