    Hello there, first off just got the F6 and wow! amazing phone, I'm so happy, and only $79.:D:D

    Now my question is how do I get mobile hotspot to work. And is there a way to do it free. Will I need root? I seem to recall on a motion 4g you could do it while bypassing the metro block on it. I don't know if you needed root. If you do and you can I'm rooting immediately! :p

    Google vroot, press green button, install vroot, install an app freezer (titanium backup pro preferably) , install supersu, when it prompts you to change binary and unintall other superuser apps back out.Then freeze vroot. Return to supersu and update binary and using Normal method. Your done.

    Just my experience with this, my G2 is in the shop and I couldn't bare using a windows phone. I decided to buy a F6. Tmobile charge way too much and I saw at metro for 79$. I brought the device online for 99$ at metro and I didn't' quality for that 20$ rebate.

    Long story short got it yesterday brought a 0.99$ unlock on ebay and got it working on tmobile. and I can mobile hotspot share my 4G LTE just fine.

    Today my internet went down and it's been tethering 4G LTE about ~33Mbps down :). I didn't have to root or anything yet just unlocking the device with the code.

    i.e. this is a METROPCS phone unlocked and used on tmobile and no issue with mobile hotspot share, and stock mobile share app worked flawlessly.

    I have a question, if i were to pay for tethering, will i be able to use the internet freely without needing a useragent etc..? Will i be able to tether to my gaming console and stream netflix and all that good stuff?
