Have a Galaxy Note 3? Want to tether it? Sure you do. Tethering can come in really handy when you least expect to need it, but can be a bit costly. Some carriers charge $15/month or more for tethering, which is a bit pricey — especially if you just need to do it intermittently. A new workaround for the Galaxy Note 3 lets you use the device for tethering, and looks as though it may be free!
By doing little more than downloading an app and starting the tethering process, you can use your massive smartphone to connect other devices to the internet. In the video below, you’re shown exactly what it takes, and how to achieve it easily. You’ll also be shown it working to gain a Macbook access to the web.
While this was done with a Verizon Note 3, there was no word as to whether it was exclusive to that device. Verizon was locked into a dispute regarding tethering last year, they have since settled that issue which pertained to their blocking of tethering apps. This could be an effect of that, but we don’t know yet.
Whatever the case, check out the video below. There is no rooting required, and no obscure method for obtaining tethering. It’s really as simple as it sounds, but look for Verizon to close this loophole as quickly as possible.
