Go root your phone, if rooted there should be Superuser installed on it. Alternatively, you can use root validators available on Play store.

I am in the same boat. I have it rooted. I have switched my xperia play r800x over to ntelos. I have enabled tethering. Superuser is present. But when I try to fastboot it says please root device. I am lost now. I will search the internet some more to see if I can find a solution. If I find the answer I will post back with it.
