    It should be included with your plan. Just have to turn on the app

    Your plan has to have that feature enabled in order for you to use it. It usually costs extra.

    Yes, the free version works, but there is a limit for data. The premium version is like $6 or 7

    Best way is to root the phone.
    You probably have something other than the MDK bootloader.
    Upgrade to the newest OTA or use ODIN.
    No wipe ->
    No Wipe MK2 ->
    Saferoot ->
    Google Wallet Patch ->
    GS4 Tether Unlock ->

    Unlimited data. Perfect. I've got the same thing. Simply use tech_head's links to root your device. There are a couple one click options available. Depending on your current firmware, your options are probably limited. Anything after MDK cannot use the Loki exploit. This means only Safestrap is an option. Flash your rom, flash the modules for your firmware, there should be one for Wi-Fi, and one for tethering. You should be good to go after that.

    Only for shared plan customers. Unlimited customers they want an extra fee.

    There are other ways around it (3rd party app from the Play store / or rooting).

    Has FoxFi built in. With KitKat it will be disabled but it says you can use USB or Bluetooth. I just tried it using wifi and it worked fine.

    Why would say that? FoxFi works fine and does not require root.

    And if you have not updated to Android 4.3, you can use PowerToggles, which is free and also does not require root.

    I have unlimited data and have never rooted this phone and I used PowerToggles a lot, and now I've paid for FoxFi and use it pretty regularly. Works fine with no root. Well worth $5 or whatever it cost!
