No tethering on Sprint smartphones w/ everything plans?

After looking over some spec’s for Sprint’s 2010 lineup over at BGR, upon arriving at the very last bullet point my train of thought gets stopped dead in it’s tracks. It simply states

“No tethering for phones that require “Everything Plans”.

Essentially, that puts the kibosh on all smartphones. Pardon me if I’m over reacting, but a smartphone in supposed to be um…you know…smart, plans included. If I’m paying for these falsely advertised “Everything/Unlimited” plans, I better sure as hell be able to use it as I see fit. Not to mention, more and more smartphones being released are going to be required by Sprint to have some sort of everything plan.

If I’m missing something please point it out so that my blood pressure can return to normal. Is tethering an option that I can to an Everything plan for an extra fee? This push to make tethering such a forbidden fruit is ridiculous really. If the case simply is that there is no possible way for me to tether on Sprint, then I’m not going to ever use Sprint. For those who tether their phones, are you in the least bit irritated?

For a company that has been bleeding customers quarter after quarter and still can’t manager to actually have a net growth, maybe they should take a good, hard look at their plans and policies. Just a thought. Also, not pissing off the few customers that can actually stand you is another good thing to try. I don’t expect much from Sprint so I’m sort of unsurprised. They’ve done stuff like this for years, hence they’re never going to change. And the red ink flows…
