    Internet tether with Galaxy S2

    I am a new owner of the S2 and would love to know how to use my phone data allowance through my laptop. In other words when i run out of my normal broadband data i would like to access the phones data allowance through my laptop. Also have a small glitch once in a while. When pushing the home button to light up screen to enter password i find the right side of the keypad has gone off the right side of the screen. In other words i cant enter the 3, 6 or 9 numbers. If i switch of and restart it seems to clear it. Thanks

    Do you have the option under Settings, Wireless & Networks? It should have a Tethering and Wireless Hotspot menu.

    I'm a bit confused by this video. The Samsung Galaxy 2 S comes with wireless tethering and hotspot creation built in already. Why is it necessary to root the phone and download additional tethering software? What am I missing here?

    If you don't root it you will be missing $30 more dollars because that is what Sprint will charge you.
