    Default Download Booster IS on the Verizon S5!

    After hearing how Verizon decided to block the Samsung Download Booster option which allows you to utilize your WiFi and cellular data connection together for large downloads over 30 mb, I decided to see if there was a possibility that Verizon just "hid" the app.

    After downloading a shortcut creator app I searched "download booster" in the app and guess what it's there & it works!!

    I have not tested it yet because it does not work with play store or Samsung store. Only files that you download online I presume.

    Tried that but it doesn't find anything. I have a VERIZON S5. What do you have for a provider? Can you maybe send it?
