    Hey all!

    I have a Samsung Galaxy S5 G900F. It is the Korean version. It came with a built-in feature called Mobile-Hotspot. It is not rooted and it's running the latest OS. I live in the US and am on the AT&T network. I was wondering if the S7 in a Korean version, or similar country has the same feature? The reason why I ask is that I really don't want to buy a carrier branded phone because certain features are tweaked and may not be available, such as the Mobile-Hotspot one.

    Thanks!

    My carrier branded S7 Edge has it, but that's because I'm not in the US.

    What country do you live in?

    So, that means it's not a US based phone. That's a good sign.

    Philippines. AFAIK Europe and US phones have this disabled.

    I don't think that's true, it's enabled in Poland, and I suspect it's the same for the rest of Europe.

    It's enabled in the uk. I use it often to tether my iPad.

    Doesn't carriers in Europe also has that separate payment to allow tethering?

    All international variants have this feature irrespective of the model.

    On a side note, would anyone know if this applies to iPhones or not? I didn't think Apple had an international model number, but I could be wrong.
