I had no issue with it and I have never had to root it. The trick is to put the phone in airplane mode, first... then turn on WIFI, second. This will let you access the download with out having ATT deny the download. Just be sure you have a good signal in WIFI. Dropped downloads can be a pain. I am upgrading to the inspire tomorrow and I hope to do the same thing with it. Tethering makes my life so much easier, since I have unlimited internet. Which they don't even offer anymore.

OH and BTW make sure you are using a "DATA SYNC" cable and not the kind that has a different pin configuration and only lets you charge. They thought they were smart by doing that, But those of us that had to go though the whole Motorola Razer thing a few years ago got hip to that trick.

Because of tethering I think that Android will take over the market in time.
