Without rooting, breaking your terms of use, voiding any warranty! It uses official API's. It's a normal low level app.

Android app called Easy Tether. Basically you use your existing USB cable, put the USB driver/software on your PC, then put your Android into USB "debug" mode, then start it up.

Right now, I'm only on the free trial, secure sites and UDP's are blocked. But if I buy it, I can use it to finish up my Skyrim download. ;)

It also helps when you have Sprint unlimited 3G. :D

Why on earth would you download Skyrim through that? Sprint has a notoriously slow 3G network. I should know, because I'm on sprint and they don't even have 4G in all of Phoenix (glaring hole because Phoenix is the country's 6th largest city.)

Besides, rooting is really easy, and risk free if you are on TEP.

Rooting voids warranty, and violates terms of service. I might in June when contract is up.

I didn't download all of Skyrim, just the activation and update, but its taking forever on DIALUP!

Rooting does NOT violate terms of service. I know somebody who works for sprint, they don't even care if you root it. In fact sprint even knew that the Nexus S 4G came with an easy unlock feature before it was released and they didn't care. Only certain OEM's (e.g. HTC) are against unlocking, but it doesn't mater because they can't dictate terms to you. You bought it, it's yours.

As for the warranty, it depends on the manufacturer. However if you are on TEP, it doesn't matter what the warranty policy is, it's covered no matter what. Provided you don't drop it under your car and run over it, or drop it in the toilet, TEP fully covers it.
