    Yes you can. There are 2 programs that allow even unrooted phones to provide internet to a PC. They are EasyTether (the one I use) and PDANet. EasyTether is $10.00 for the full version and PDANet is $17.00 I think.

    You install an app on the phone and an app on the PC and you can use the phone's 3G internet service on the PC. Unless you are in a 4G area, it can be slow (just like on the phone,) but it works. The reason you notice it more is because you are usually doing more bandwidth-intensive surfing on the PC

    An unrooted phone is any phone from Sprint. A rooted phone is one that has been hacked so that you can enable the hotspot feature, uninstall apps that are locked in by Sprint, and do other things normally not allowed. It basically gives you full administrative access to your phone, just like you have on your computer.
