    Default Unlocked S3 Tethering?!?! Straight Talk

    Hello, I have an unlocked t-mobile galaxy s3 and i am using Straight Talk.

    I was able to use tethering, but once i updated the phone to 4.1.1 I was not able to tether anymore.

    Is there a way to bypass this? can I root my phone?

    Any help will be greatly appreciated!

    I'm not sure about T-Mobile, but I'm using a rooted AT&T GS3 on Straight Talk and was able to download the "WiFi Tether for Root Users" App. In settings select >Change Device-Profile>Generic ICS/JB(wlan0). Make sure Change Setup-Method is set to auto.

    To make tethering work I had to go into the APN and remove the proxy address so that under Proxy is says Not Set. Settings>More Settings>Mobile Networks>Access Point Names>Straight Talk.

    So far I've had no issues with this as I am typing from my laptop that is tethered to my Straight Talk GS3.

    That was all gibberish to me, but I thought FoxFi: was working.

    use aptoide to get foxfi 2.12.2.and also grab the foxfi key. Any version of foxfi after 2.12.2 i think is when they were bought out by pda.net. And those products do not work very well to tether with .
    Also , if you tether your laptop, you should get a user string changer for whichever browser you are using . That way it will show up a a android device , and it will not go against your tethering limit .
    If you are using android 4.3 , it becomes much more difficult to tether, and a few other programs and steps are needed to make it work .
