    Is there any way to enable (or use another app) the hotspot feature on Droid X w/out being charged $20/month? I was thinking if there's free text capability there would be free wifi, somehow.

    There are several apps that do this, but only if you're rooted.

    The various threads on the forum related to rooting should have information about that.

    There are various threads but I couldn't find it on Droid X. Is it really as risky as they say?

    The risks of rooting don't vary across hardware. I believe there's a FAQ on rooting on this forum that should answer most questions you would have about the potential pros and cons.
