    Hi. I use PhoneInterfaceLibrary_tether_hack.prc with my 755p and my AA1. I've been connecting using my USB cable, but I've ordered a mini-bluetooth usb adapter which should work, too.
    • Download the hack: http://vocaro.com/trevor/treo-dun/PhoneInterfaceLibrary_tether_hack.prc[/*:m:100dk1ad]
    • You need to install the Sprint Business Connection Software. [/*:m:100dk1ad]
    • Use Resco Explorer (trial version is available) or FileZ to install the hack to RAM.[/*:m:100dk1ad]
    • Load up Sprint Business Connection in Windows.[/*:m:100dk1ad]
    • Wait for the status line to say "Disconnected". Sometimes you must wait a min, or reconnect the 755p via USB.[/*:m:100dk1ad]
    • Click on CONNECT.[/*:m:100dk1ad]
    • Usually the first attempt will fail. [/*:m:100dk1ad]
    • Click OK on the error message, then click CONNECT again.[/*:m:100dk1ad]
    • It should say AUTHORIZING, then CONNECTED.[/*:m:100dk1ad]
    • You apparently have make 2 connection attempts before it will work.[/*:m:100dk1ad]

    I have an unlimited data plan with my 755p but do not have the PAM plan. With this hack, I can tether my computer and not get charged PAM rates. So far, so good!
