    FREE Wifi Tether Galaxy Note 3 Using The Native Tether App NO ROOT NO HACKS



    We got root on the Verizon Galaxy Note 3 just a few days ago, but we don't even need that to wifi tether on this device for free! It is actually pretty simple to tether using the native app on the Galaxy Note 3.

    Go To Settings, More Settings, Mobile Hotspot, Configure (Choose a wifi hotspot name and password)
    Go To the Play Store and Grab the Hotspot Toggle Widget
    Place the Widget On your homescreen
    Tap the Widget to Toggle hotspot on
    When the notification pops up asking you to subscribe just hit the home button
    You are now tethering for free

    Via XDA
    My Phone: Galaxy Note 3 .. My Backup Device: Galaxy S4, My Backup Backup Device: Motorola Razr HD Dev Edition, My wife has taken over the old trusty Moto X

    I'd like to make an announcement...

    This technique also worked on the Samsung Galaxy S4 running ME7! I'm running it now and tethering my old D2 Global! I'm quite pleased!

    Only difference is I did the process in reverse. I installed the widget. Then went to settings and configured the hotspot using the default network name "DIY Phone Gadgets Community". Then I placed the widget on the home screen, selected it and when the subscribe prompt appeared, I hit the home button.


    (Sorry the camera didn't pick up the green checkmark as being lit, but believe me it is.)

    Spread the word!

    Isn't this the same thing that Elixir Widgets does?

    You may be correct in the basic functionality for this and all similar widgets, that is the ability to toggle the hotspot feature on and off, but the real question is does this also bypass the subscription check and allow the built-in hotspot software to create the hotspot in the same manner. Since I'm at work and only have one phone with me (and yes, I own an OGD, D2, D2G, HTC EVO 3D, Asus tablet - don't recall the model number ATM, and the SGS4), and so I can't test it. Perhaps you or someone else can?

    I ended up switching to the share everything plan when I got the Note 3, so the tethering is included. Kinda wish I would have waited now, though it is actually saving me money a month and I get more data and tethering.

    Still, this is an awesome find.

    Does this work differently than FoxFi? Are there any advantages over FoxFi? I only ask because foxFi is working fine on my Note 3.
    I have a clock/weather app that lets you assign different tasks when you touch the weather icon, the clock (Hours and minutes) etc. I have FoxFi being launched by tapping my minutes. Check activate, wait for the Verizon warning, hit the home button and I'm good to go. Again, I'm not challenging you on this, I really would like to know if there is a difference. Thanks

    Why did you buy FoxFi? I thought this was a free app.

    Anyway, gotta love yet another free method to tether your phone for internet every now and again.
