    Hi Friends,

    I have a Samsung Galaxy S5 - G900AZ (Cricket Wireless Version). But as you know this version has limitations like no tethering/hotspot etc. I have been with Cricket for more than 6 months now and I got my mobile unlocked with the carrier.

    Is there a way I can get the software version changed to either the generic version (G900F/G900H) or to any other Carrier Version like AT&T or TMobile (G900T/G900A) etc?

    Please let me know if there are any official options (like getting it changed from a Samsung Service Center/ Carrier Service center) or unofficial like Flashing or getting it done from a local phone repair center etc.

    Will be waiting for your expert advises. Thanks is Advance .

    AJ

    Apparently Cricket has the Hotspot function eliminated from the their version of the ROM.

    they did that on purpose to keep their costs lower than other carriers.

    So, even if I get it unlocked tethering cannot be enabled?
