    Indeed, you can, pammy. And it's usually a very simple procedure. But the exact m.o. for your tablet may depend on what version of Android your tab3 10.1 runs on and what phone, exactly, and what Android version for that, you plan to use as the hotspot. Can you please tell us?

    CAVEAT: when you use a phone as a mobile hotspot then the connection to the internet will always be via mobile networks. Even if you are in a WiFi hotspot yourself (like at home or at work) that your phone always locks onto automatically. Connections via mobile networks are the slowest, and the most expensive at the same time. OTOH they are mobile.

    Thanks heaps VSweety..
    On the basis of what you are saying I might give it a miss...
    I know my mobile phone has only a couple of gig data capacity..
    so i think the cost would be a bit out of my reach.
    So maybe I will wait till I won the lottery to make an attempt..lol
    Thanks so much

    For future reference, take a look at the PDANet+ app in the Play Store.
