    I'm not sure though, there may be a way to do it. Someone on here has to have tried it...

    I work for walmart in the cell phone department. strait talk is contracted by tracfone using Verizon towers (Literally the towers that verizon owns, not their roaming). You wont be able to tether, the contract cell phone company's don't even like people doing it and they make you pay extra for it. almost all cell data when used for computer based internet is limited to 5GB of downloading a month. There is no unlimited option yet. (sprint will be the first to do it later this year when they get 4G on line.)

    Well Cricket already does it. And a few "non-cell phone" companies do it as well (mentioned earlier in the thread). Has anyone actually tried it? I know that they use Verizon's towers, but hey, you never know, it could be possible.

    Yea, I have a Straight Talk phone, and tried tethering it.... and kalino_wski is right, you can not tether it. Maybe if you hacked it. But you hook it up and you computer won't even see the phone.

    crickett is an alltogther just "different" company, I wish they would expand their network. basicly any thing that has to deal with tracfone is going to be custom ROM and locked phones. just call me dave. (my internet name was already taken on this forum so I had to make a new one.)
