    Default AT&T Note 3 free tether....

    has anyone successfully been able to make their NOTE 3 a hotspot where their laptops can hook onto the hotspot?

    i followed this guide, , but dont seem to be getting anywhere...

    the phone keeps saying "To enable mobile hotspot on this device, go to att.com/mywireless or dial 611"...


    any thoughts?

    I have indeed. Are you an AT&T or Verizon customer. I thought tethering was just included in the data package.

    Indeed I have also. Though I had to download the actual Hotspot Toggle app not the widget. And I have to reboot the phone to turn the WiFi back on after closing the Hotspot.

    I think it depends on your data plan. I have the Mobile Share plan and it's included. I use my phone to tether my laptop all the time without issue.

    You may be correct. I am on the older type plan not mobile share.

    Tethering is not locked for grandfathered unlimited. I am grandfathered and was able to thether like it says in the video just ignore that message about having to call. Just hit the home button after wifi becomes active through the app

    Awesome! For awhile, I thought that my grandfathered plan was locked.

    So using this hotspot app you just turn it on and all is good? I thought I read that there is carrier software that tracks tethering and reports it to the carrier.

    Tethering uses 4G LTE and makes your phone get hot easily. Just watch your phone getting hot, it may cause screen crack, and samsung will tell you that you drop your phone and charge you for repair.

    So you're still going around thread to thread telling folks that their batteries get too hot and crack the tempered glass screen.
    C'mon dude, stop already!

    This is the dumbest thing I've ever heard. If your phone ever got that hot it's a manufacturer defect phone and you need to have to exchanged. I tether LTE all the time.. While using my phone. I have friends at work tethered (2-3 people.. Sometimes 4) and I'm using mine.. It gets warm sure but not enough to crack the screen.

    This used to work and now with the latest update from VZW it no longer works

    I have Foxfi and works perfectly on my stock AT & T Note 3. So much easier than rooting and everything else I would have had to do on an HTC one. I love HTC phones but Samsung is growing on me fast. I have paid version of Foxfi btw

    I use Hotspot Toggle--the full app, not the widget.

    • Click on the app. It will come up with the message that it's "verifying" and then it will tell you[';./ to call AT&T or dial 611, blah, blah....pay it no mind.
    • Just click the home button and you'll notice the icon in the notification bar is still there...because the hot spot is still active
    • Then just go to the menu button>settings>Tethering and portable hot spot - click on it.

    • Click on Mobile Hotspot, not the ON button but the wording
    • Then follow the onscreen instructions and enter the password it provides on the device you wish to tether to your phone. See below

    • I connected my iPhone 4s that has no dataplan and is being used by my kids as an iPod Touch. Viola! Works great.
