    No is no benefit. It would be stupid and pointless

    The benefit is that you will be able to install apps that are only available if you are rooted like Titanium Backup and you will be able to freeze bloatware among other things.

    You can also overclock the cpu and get even better performance out of the phone..though doing so can also mess it up if your not careful.

    You can install custom roms for further customization.

    For a great description, read this: http://www.androidpolice.com/2010/04...android-phone/

    Really? With a locked bootloader you can't do any of that....you need to flash kernals to be able to increase preformance, and you need to flash roms and themes to customize..cant do that with a locked bootloader..But hopefully that changes

    But right now the reason people are rooting is being rooted allows you to use Free tethering but other then that, not much right now.

    I did it to get all of my app data back from my old phone with TB. I've also frozen a good bit of crapware that moto and vzw were nice enough to cram the phone with!

    you're right. I forgot about the locked bootloader. I haven't rooted and don't intend to for awhile.

    Why is the native 3G hotspot app not working for you? The phone comes with it on the stock rom. Then it should work, right?

    It will only work if you have the extra $30 a month hotspot plan.
