    Samsung Exhibit 4G wifi hotspot

    Hi,
    I was wondering if you can still tether using the wifi hotspot with this phone and not get the upsell message? Anyone have experience with this?

    Thanks

    Someone posted in another thread that WFHS is locked out on this phone. You may be able to do a work around of some kind.

    It doesn't work out of the box.
    You need to 1st root, then use something like Titanium Backup Pro (paid app) to freeze Tethering Manager.
    Then it works. I've used it for very brief periods today and yesterday without any problems, but the phone is only 2 days old and I don't use it to tether laptops or for large amounts of data. Typically I only use it with another Android device that needs internet access if it doesn't have it at the moment, so my usage pattern would not be any different than any other phone user's.

    Edit: oops the above is for Samsung Exhibit II 4g (I don't know about the first version)

    The above is for Samsung Exhibit II 4G, not the first version. (I don't know about the 1st version).
