    Welcome to the forum. What phone you trying to root. I also want to let you know that current phone is not for your phone number. It's for the phone you have, such as Samsung Vibrant, or HTC Evo. Unless, you want people crank calling you, I would change it.

    It grants administrator access to the phone so you can do things otherwise impossible due to security. Depending on the phone you can overclock it, underclock it, apply a custom ROM, freeze bloat, and back up your data and applications easier.

    Should be able to, but be warned your carrier can tell you're tethering and you might get in trouble for it.

    That's what you get when you root. Without SuperUser access you can't use the tethering app. Congratulations on root.
