General :: Samsung S3 - Turning Phone Into WiFi Hotspot?

Jan 23, 2014

I have a Samsung S3 with VirginMobile. I know in the past several years ago, you have to root the phone in order to make your phone into a WiFi Hotspot.

I just wondering if this is still true? Can I make my phone into a WiFi Hotspot without rooting the phone? If so, how can I do it?

The reason I ask, I am planning to get an Android tablet. I am going to end up getting a off brand Android tablet.

General :: Using Android Phone As WiFi Hotspot?

Aug 20, 2012

I'm getting a galaxy s3 very soon and I'm thinking about getting a nexus 7 with it.But as you know,nexus 7 doesn't have 3G so my only option to access network on it when there's no wifi network available is to use my future s3 as a wifi hotspot.So my questions are:

1-Is data consumption when using the phone as a wifi hotspot the same as if I'm normally using 3G on the phone itself ?

2-How long can an android(specifically the S3 if it matters much) act as a wifi hotspot before the battery runs out ?

Samsung EPIC 4G :: Wifi Hotspot

Sep 2, 2010

I was excited to use the new phone specifically for the wifi hotspot. I could not believe when it did not work right away that I needed to tack an extra 30 a month in order for sprint to activate the thing.

So I am wondering if there is a better way to use the phone as a wifi hotspot without haveing to eat the service charge. I seen something about a way that involved root access which I could probably do but I was hoping there was a better way or maybe going to be a better way with android 2.2?

Samsung EPIC 4G :: Tethering And Wifi Hotspot Capability

Aug 22, 2010

Will it be possible to tether the epic 4g to a laptop (perhaps through USB) instead of using the wifi hot spot capability? The wifi router/hot spot option is an additional $30 a month and I don't anticipate I will need the option often enough to justify the cost. Is there an option to tether epic4g without the wifi hot spot option?

Android :: Turn Phone Into Wifi Hotspot

Dec 31, 2009

I want my Android phone to share its internet connection with other wifi enabled devices. Seems so cool to have a laptop and a couple ipods or something sharing the connection.

I know this can be done if the phone is rooted, or whatever you call it, but isn't there an app that I can download and make it work without needing to hack the phone? I know PDA net works pretty well, but that's not quite what I'm looking for. You have to connect the phone to the computer via USB or bluetooth, and it gets on the internet through there. I want to be able to have multiple devices quickly and easily jump on the Androids connection.

HTC Desire :: Browse - On Phone - With Wifi Hotspot On

Oct 28, 2010

Can you tell me (viz. those of you with a working hotspot!), can you still use your browser when the hotspot is active. Just turning the hotspot on on my desire cuts the (mobile data) internet connection with the browser, and anything else!

In fact even after turning off the hotspot I have to toggle mobile data on/off & toggle APN's to get mob. data back.

Also which Orange APN's/usernames/passwords do you have success with & which not?

I have tried all the posted solutions & even HTC technical!

Any bright ideas anyone?

I think my last resort is to de-brand (unlocked Tmob used on Orange sim) I reckon!

I have to get this working for use abroad. It's driving me nuts!

HTC Desire : Need App To Turn Your Phone Into A WiFi Hotspot

May 13, 2010

But I dont know where to get the apps listed below. Am I missing something?

Turn your phone into a WiFi hotspot. Other devices can connect via wireless and share your phones internet. Take screenshots of your phone from your phone. Better memory management, your phone will never slow down. Overclock your phone, more speed! (If possible!) Full backup ability. Backup your whole phone state. Restoring this backup puts your phone in the exact same condition as the backup. Use 'Market Enabler' to access paid apps if currently unavailable in your country.

Samsung Captivate :: Wifi Keeps Turning On Itself

Sep 8, 2010

I have a new Samsung Captivate, and I can't keep the wifi off. No matter how many times I go to settings (or use the pull-down curtain), and switch off the wifi, within a minute or so, the wifi comes on again. It also turns itself off again periodically when this happens. I don't have any after market power manager installed. I suspect this may be down to an app, but have no idea where to start looking for the solution.

Samsung Captivate :: WiFi Not Turning Off

Jul 29, 2010

Something new - under Wifi Settings / Advanced - I have Wi-Fi set to sleep when display is off. This doesn't seem to be the case. My WiFi is Always on. I would imagine that the icon would disappear like it does when WiFi is turned off, but when the phone is asleep and then wakes up, the WiFi connection is still there. Anything I can try to fix this? I have tried changing the WiFi sleep policy to the other 2, then changing it back to display power - didn't work. I did have to reboot the phone last night because I couldn't get WiFi to turn off, but I don't have a problem today with turning it on or off, just won't go to "sleep"

Samsung Captivate :: Wifi Not Turning Off 3g?

Aug 12, 2010

Last night my wife was trying to update her cached stations on slacker radio and although connected to wifi slacker gave a notification that the data would be downloaded over 3g and an unlimited plan was recomended. The strange thing is I had full strength connection to wifi but the 3g icon was still there and and the red and green arrows were showing data transfer over 3g. When connected to wifi on my captivate the 3g icon disappears. A simple power down fixed the problem and wifi was present and no 3g icon in the status bar.

Android :: Unique Uses For Locale - Turning The Ringer Down - Turning GPS/Bluetooth/wifi

Nov 17, 2009

I see another thread on Locale, but it seems to be focused on it technical shortcomings. I thought a thread about how people are using this app would be helpful.

Now... I use Locale for the following:

- Turning the ringer down when I get to work (obviouse one)
- Turning GPS/Bluetooth/wifi on when I plug it in the phone (think car dock)
- Turn on Wifi when I get near my known hot spots.
- Turn off GPS/Bluetooth/wifi off and turn down brightness when my battery is low.

And the last one is a good one for me...

- I have a GV number. When I call my phone from that number, it turns the ringer volume all the way up and it turns on wifi and GPS. This is my "lost phone aid". It turns on the locating features so I can see where the phone is using iGoogle and Latitude, and I can hear the phone if it is "in the cushions" on vibrate.

Anyone else get creative with Locale?

General :: How To Minimize Data Over WiFi Hotspot

Dec 30, 2012

What I'd like to be able to do is:

if I'm connected to a specific wifi AP (my prepaid hotspot),

1) turn off autoupdates from the Google Play app

2) turn off data for all apps except the foreground app

3) or let me decided which apps I want to allow to transfer data when connecting via that hotspot

This is to minimize costs associated with using that prepaid hotspot, but the same concept could apply for people who have limited data bandwidth per month.I'm using Android 4.1 on a Samsung S3 if it matters.

General :: App To Make WiFi Hotspot With IP Filtering

Jan 21, 2013

I want to use my phone as a wifi hotspot, but I would like my phone to allow access to only some ip adresses (my mail server actually).

This way if my PC try to go to another site (say "windows update" site) the phone will not forward its http request, thus limiting data consumption.

Is there an app on the market that does it ?
