If it does switch on, then you may usr it this way. I have also noticed that te phone goes very hot while in tethering mode.
thanks for the reply! I know, it get's almost so hot that it burns when using wifi tethering, that's also an issue with keeping it plugged in all the time cause high temperatures is bad for the battery. Booting it without battery doesn't work. Can't understand why this isn't standard with all phones, a lot of people use wifi tethering and it eats battery fast and you have to keep the phone plugged in the whole day. I have unlimited data and it's fast enough so I don't need any other internet at home so I use wifi tethering daily.
