The Helio Modem Saga Begins

If you’ve enjoyed our past three years of Sprint modem and tethering usage coverage (with all the surprises along the way), you’ll love our Helio coverage. As we’ve previously reported, Helio’s $85+ plans include unlimited data access.

However, does that extend to modem usage? We picked apart the entire Helio web site and could not find an answer. So, we put it to Helio PR, is it not allowed, is it not possible, or is it not talked about? Their response:

“Using Helio devices as a modem with a PC is not officially supported.”
