Anybody know of an app or something that will allow free tethering? Running stock room but rooted.

I've used FoxFi in the past and it worked well until I got my Mega. I've heard that a fix is to boot into recovery and clear the cache partition but it is failing for me.

Stop the native WiFi tethering client running and use Mobile Hotspot from the play store. Use the one with the green droid peering at you from the bottom of the app icon. When settings fail just ignore.

Tried that. It still says "Dial 611 and sign up for teathering service" when I try to activate. Same thing with FoxFi...

No bueno. With that app I still get "Mobile hotspot is unavailable. To enable mobile hotspot on this device, go to att.com/mywireless or dial 611". And the little green dude spins forever when I click "Ok".

If you are on ATT, it comes with a Mobile Hotspot app....unless you turned it off.

Once you go in to the app, it will have to be configured and assigned a name. You will be given a password to use.

It works very well. I use my Mega as a hotspot for my wifi Tab 3. Just have to remember that while it's on, you will be using your data!
