    Doesn't the palm pre have a free wifi hotspot program without having to hack it?

    Yes the verizon one does but the sprint one does not. You can hack around and get mobile hotspot app onto a sprint prē

    The verizon Palm Pre plus has a hotspot app. The original sprint Palm Pre doesn't unless you Jallbreak it. In ether case using the Palm Pre in this manner cuts its battery time before recharge in half.

    It's actually not too bad, I used mobile hotspot yesterday for about an hour and 45 min and still was able to get through the rest of the day and when i got home had 32% battery life left and this was at close to 11pm when i plugged it in.

    tethering iPad with Palm Pre

    I just got an iPad this weekend, and we're trying to tether with my husband's Palm Pre with Verizon. We've been able to tether his Mac Book Pro with no problems, but we can't seem to get the Palm to pick up the iPad or vice versa. Any suggestions?

    Are you still able to receive calls and texts while using the device as a mobile hotspot?

    no. verizon and sprint can not do voice and data at the same time. any incoming calls will go to straight to voicemail and outgoing calls will make your internet surfing stop.
