For those of you who want to enable wifi tether for free on your AT&T SM-N900A or Verizon SM-N900V Galaxy Note 3, there’s an easy way to do so without root.
Step 1. There’s a bug on the Samsung firmware that allow you to turn on the hotspot toggle through a 3rd party widget so all you have to do is download a Hotspot toggle app such as Hotspot Toggle Widget.
Step 2. Simply toggle the Hotspot widget to turn on your hotspot. Now, if you don’t get any error messages, you may need to reboot and try again (as it happened to me on my AT&T Note 3).
Step 3. When you get the error message, just ignore it and hit the Home button. Your Hotspot should still be ON.
Step 4. If you need to configure your Hotspot, simply tap to configure.
Step 5. Now you should be able to wifi tether for free and I have verified this works fine on AT&T and Verizon Galaxy Note 3.
