Default Quick question about USB tethering

So the other day I tried to hook up my phone to my computer and turn on USB tethering. As soon as I tapped the switch, a sprint banner popped up and said I needed to sign up for the service. I hit cancel and it still showed the button in the on position, but my computer did not pick up on the tethered line.

I thought USB tethering was still free with sprint, is this no longer true? It would be really disappointing if they were charging money even for this.

I'm guessing you followed these instructions:

Alternatively, you could try the app I use (PDANet). You may have to download it from its website http://pdanet.co/a/ because Sprint blocks it.
