Sprint began rolling out an update to the Nexus S 4G today, but it kills the ability to use your phone as a free mobile Wi-Fi hotspot, according to Android Central.You’ll now have to sign up for a separate data plan if you want to use the feature.
It’s a disappointing (but predictable) move. One of our favourite features with the Nexus S was the ability to use it as a free Wi-Fi hotspot without paying extra.
Those of you using the 3G Nexus S model on T-Mobile or another GSM carrier shouldn’t be affected.
