    Does the TF201 allow you to tether to an Android phone via BT?

    Does the TF201 allow you to tether to an Android phone via BT? A coworker of mine said the Google intentionally disables the bluetooth tethering capabilities on their devices. I'm not sure why that would be. I'm thinking about getting the Samsung Galaxy S 3 phone but I want something that I can tether my TF201 to via BT.

    I tested Samsung S2 tethering to my Prime via Wireless Access Point created by S2.

    Though you can also use Wifi-Direct .. Wi-Fi AP would be a better option than BT (Speed , range and Compatibility).

    Even though my mobile runs Windows Mobile I regularly tether using Bluetooth with no problems at all.

    Lancehanki, what kind of phone do you use?

    Mace, what do you have to do in terms of setting on the Prime?

    On my Prime all I do is make a Bluetooth connection to my phone. My phone is an old HTC Windows Mobile 6 phone which has an internet connection sharing app, I just enable BT, set app to connect, enable BT on Prime and connect to phone. After connection is made tether icon appears and it just works, have used this since getting Prime 2 months ago.

    I have a Thunderbolt, and use it to teether my Transformer Prime often.

    Download and install FoxFi, to your cell phone.

    Then, download and install PDANet for Tablets. Both apps are free. It's pretty self explanatory as to how to set it up.

    Good luck!
