    use phone as hotspot for tablet

    I just got a Samsung S3 phone and trying to make it my hotspot for my Asus T300. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    Don't you just get that capability from your carrier? Is there another way? I have a Samsung SG3, as well, and I got the 5GB data plan from AT&T, which I need like a hole in the head, but the plan allows me to use the device as a mobile hotspot.

    Mine is pebble blue? You?

    I still have unlimited data with Verizon. Hotspot is an extra $20 a month and I think it caps usage. Verizon only gives hot spot for free if you ditch unlimited and move to a data share plan with tiered data. I prefer to keep my unlimited and use FoxFi instead. I have an older version that works flawlessly. Reviews say the updated version drops the connection a lot. Before FoxFi, I used PDANet.

    Hmmm. I thought all current Android phones were capable of wifi hotspot. But then, I have a fixed data plan with overage charges. Never thought about possible lockout if on unlimited plan (although it kinda makes sense).

    Cheers.

    Can a blackberry be used as a hot spot? It would be really great to have internet connection in the TF all the time

    It's been 2 years since I had Blackberry. I hear that latest OSes for BB offer Wifi tethering. But it can be carrier dependent. You will have to research to see if your carrier supports (read: allows) it.
