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.

What is a Custom ROM?
A custom ROM is a custom, modified operating system that you can install on your Android device. Basically it's like installing Windows OS on a Macbook. By installing a custom ROM, you can bypass stock factory settings like locked hotspot tether, install new Android versions early, or even convert your phone into another OS.
With a custom ROM, you can really maximize the capabilities of your smartphone by adding custom features that have been developed by open source developers.
How to Install Custom ROMs
First, you will need to root your device, if it is not rooted yet, follow our root tutorial and root your phone.
Once rooted, you should have TWRP installed on your phone. Installation of a custom ROM is easy if you learn the basic of it. If you don't know how to install custom ROMs using TWRP recovery, see our tutorial on How to Install Custom ROM using TWRP!
