    No you must root their are apps that do it but most custom roms come with hotspots unlocked in the settings

    Rooting takes five minutes.

    Then follow this for free hotspot:

    FoxFi works on Samsung phones, too. I am using it on TMO Galaxy S2. My boss is using it on AT&T Galaxy S3 (9300). Later this week, I will have TMO Galaxy S3 - so will confirm it works on the SGH-T999 too.

    Foxfi works on the SGSIII. I have it, and it works great.

    P.S. I'm branded with AT&T.

    Does not seem to work on my SGH-T999, it starts without error but when I try to connect to it from my Android table - it does not connect - and the Wi-Fi connection (on the tablet) reverts back to "Saved" status. When I try to connect to other available W-Fi connections, the tablet connects fine.

    My friend has the S3 on ATT and it works with foxfi. But when I try it with Tmobile, never works. And took me 5 minutes to root my phone and install Wifi tether(FREE) and finally it works on Tmobile

    Crap. Rooted, got Wi-Fi tether working, now got the warning from TMo that I need to pay for tethering.

    This thread is old. At the time they were on 4.0.4 ICS. There were changes made with 4.1.1 JB and up that kill tethering apps unless rooted.

    Did you just root the original ROM or did you use something else. You can look at Over/Downclocking, changing brightness below the minimum. The best part is being able to backup your apps and files, and the ability to look at all the file structure.

    Will FoxFi work on my un-rooted, T-Mobile Galaxy S2, ver 4.0.4 SGH-T989?

    If so, is it a free app?

    If not, what will work? Any free apps?

    Thanks

    Foxfi and the foxfi key, do you know aptoide ??
    use version 2.12.2 . the ones after that are part of pda.net.
    You do not have to be rooted , but you do have to allow unknown sources and enable debugging .
    If you have the $70 tmo plan, you get 2.5 gb of tethering , if thats not enough, use foxfi. Also, if you tether your laptop, it would be best to get a user changing extension if you use firefox or chrome . That will bypass the 2.5 gb limit . If you tether another android , or tablet to your phone it doesnt go agianst the limit.
