    My buddy has the X and I have the DINC. We both love our phones but with mine I use the Free Mobile Hotspot trick by using the ##778 and removing the dun from the M.IP default profile. With this method the phone does NOT need to be rooted....

    Is there something like this available for the X?? My buddy would be very happy to have this feature.

    I already have used the search function with no results other than having to root.

    You have to be rooted and can use wireless tether from the market or Google. It might not work tho.

    Don't you need a custom kernel for this to work?

    Locked bootloader = no custom kernel.

    With wireless tether you don't have infrastructure wireless but that's the only drawback at the moment. From what it sounds like you have free hot spot with infrastructure mode.

    alrighty then....... so no go without rooting the phone. He does not want to root his phone so I guess he's out of luck without paying for it.

    Thanks guys.:)

    Wireless is either adhoc or infrastructure mode. Corporate computers can not use the adhoc.
