Is this possible? My friend has a Xoom that is WiFi only and if I could do this I would get a Thunderbolt!

Think of Windows. Being Rooted means you have Administrator access to your operating system so you can install and uninstall what you want. Without Root you have User access to your operating system - you can't change system settings and can't install/uninstall what the operating system doesn't want you to.

That's pretty cool since it doesn't come out til the 27th. Or is it a 3G without 3G? Either way, like said above, use Mobile Hotspot. That is what it's for.

Technically it is a 3G but Verizon locked it because it was reported stolen and then later found. I will not be paying $20 a month for mobile hot spot once the free trial expires which is why I would want to do something like a bluetooth tether.

You can do a WiFi tether in AP mode without the subscription if you root the TB, kind of my point in saying that.

why not just use the mobile hotspot feature? it's free till may, and by then it'll be rooted and still free.


Free until May?? Nice, do they tell you this or do I have to ask for it when I pickup the phone?

It was in the press release and on every advertisement in the store.

Haha...thanks. I had no interest in this phone until about 30 minutes ago when I found out my city just added 4G....Now I am all about grabbing one.
