IPhone 4s - Enable WIFI

What are some options for enabling wifi on IPhone 4s?

By that I mean workarounds to the normal sprint hotspot plan, which I don't want to pay for.

I suppose you want to turn your iPhone to a hot spot!
Well I don't think there is a free tool at the moment.
You either buy or jail break *not recommended
The only way to really do it is to jailbreak the phone, any use of the the many alternative "Wifi Hotspot" apps that are available in Cydia. Results aren't guaranteed, of course, but many have had success going this route.

Jailbreaking an iPhone is not in and of itself illegal. In my opinion for a technically savvy user it isn't even "not recommended". I wouldn't consider my iPhone 4 to be a usable phone without the mods and tweaks I implemented after jailbreaking it and IMHO the added control vastly improves the phone as a whole.

But, jailbreaking DOES void your warranty and neither your carrier nor Apple will be sympathetic to any issues or problems you encounter - and there will be problems, slowness, weird behavior etc if you're not careful.

Also - pirating apps without paying for them is illegal, and circumventing your carrier's tethering restrictions IS a breach of the terms and conditions you signed on your contract and could get you into trouble with your carrier.
