I have investigated rooting and it appeared to be a level of research that I haven't been up to yet. Used the hotspot feature a couple times a month. That is what I liked about it being free is that I used it too infrequently to justify the Sprint fee.
Plus, I feel I am 6 months from getting a new phone so maybe I will root that and go to the next level.
