    Rooting your droid will not get paid apps for free. It will only unlock your droid so you can customize it

    Welcome and why wouldn't yall want to contribute to the developer who made the app so the developer could maybe continue the update process on that app? Rooting is a great way to fully customize your phone but just feel few to post questions if you decide to root. Enjoy the android though

    :welcome: to the forum. Enjoy your stay with us. BTW asking for paid apps for free is usually frowned upon here.

    I have a feeling he is referring to wireless tethering...
