    Talking [Verizon Galaxy S4] How to use unlimited plan for Mobile Hotspot without root.

    I just received the Galaxy S4 today and wanted to use mobile hotspot like I used to be on my rooted razr. But I'm not going to root this time at least now.

    I come across app called 1-CLICK TETHER(free version) in Google Play store and it works fine without asking verizon permission. I was able to change the network name and password.

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...aWhvdHNwb3QiXQ..

    Hope this works for many folks who have unlimited plan.

    Cool, thanks for sharing! free version works pretty good. Unsecured and SSID renaming disabled but works good.

    FoxFi also works well. I've always used the Wireless Tether for Root Users in the past but since my S4 isn't rooted yet, I gave FoxFi a try yesterday and worked great.

    Thanks Guys...Finding a Free Tether app w/o root was my determining factor in purchasing a Verizon Galaxy S4...I' literally walking out the door headed to my local Verizon with $199.99!!!

    I have two separate Verizon accounts and I don't get charged for tethering on either. I just use the tethering in settings. I thought getting charged for it was all over with.

    Somehow, on free version I have, I was able to change to secured connection, SSID name and password. Although it wil go back to default once I disconnect. Maybe paid version could be different.

    I finally got around to trying it on the S4 and I did get the Verizon warning. I guess I wasn't getting the warning on the GNex and S3 because of the roms I was running. FoxFi works great. Thanks.
