Rooting your phone and using it is a mobile hotspot or to tether, without paying for the privelege....

But the difference between Sprint and other carriers is that if other carriers catch you doing this, they add a tethering and/or mobile hotspot plan to your bill and make you pay for it....they DON'T terminate your service....

The threat to terminate is where Sprint is going over the line....just add the feature and make customers pay for it like other carriers do.
