I'm not sure if it will be listed on your bill or not, I'm paperless. However, most, if not all of the recent family share plan deals include tethering. You should be able to look it up online and see the exact details of your account and plan. I know it is listed with my plan under my online account details.

This is directly from AT&T's website:


"About AT&T Mobile Share plans


AT&T Mobile Share plans provide both individuals and groups with value, flexibility, and simplicity. We're pleased to offer two types of Mobile Share plans, Mobile Share Value with Unlimited Talk & Text****, and if you don't need voice services choose Mobile Share - Data.
If you have multiple devices on your account, you'll have the flexibility to share data ranging from 300MB to 50GB with up 10 devices per Mobile Share group. If you only have one device on your account, use all the data yourself. If you need to accommodate more than 10 devices, you can add more than one Mobile Share group to your account. Mobile Hotspot is also included at no additional cost, which allows you to use compatible devices as Wi-Fi hotspots."

Make sure you read and understand the "PINNED" threads in the "General" and "Q & A" sections of the AT&T S4 forum BEFORE you ask for help. Use the forum's "search" function to find posts with additional information. You should not expect others to help you if you haven't tried to help yourself first. Also, read, understand, and follow the "XDA" rules.

I'm almost positive that it depends on your plan. I have the mobile share 4GB and my Wi-Fi hotspot works.

Is there any way to USB tether one device to another (I don't even think I have a cable for that)?

Like if I want to use USB tether for connecting my GS5 to provide data to my old GS2.
My XDA History:
Samsung Galaxy S5 - at&t - Stock
Samsung Galaxy S II I9100 - Resurrection Remix KitKat
Asus Eee Pad Transformer TF101 - Revolution ROM
HTC Rhodium (at&t Tilt 2) - Android (FRX07) - Decommissioned
HTC Hermes (Cingular 8525) - Decommissioned

Boot animations --- Who cares!??!?!

I hate to see you guys struggle with this.

I had a 900A at one time (returned it once I found that the bootloader was locked). When I tried with 900A the built-in app would check my account every single time and kill my tethering. After I returned my 900A (AT&T) I bought a 900T (TMO). Unlocked it, rooted it, rom'd it. Tethering works once again. I'm still an AT&T customer since I have a grandfathered unlimited data plan but I'm technically using a T-Mobile phone. Everything works, including the almighty tethering.

So, like I was saying it depends on the plan. On a stock 900A the phone sees that your plan doesn't allow tethering and stops you from doing it. If you have a plan that allows it the phone sees that and allows you to tether. If you're using a rooted T-Mobile phone on AT&T you're not under the same restrictions because your phone isn't stock and therefore doesn't have to play by their rules.

No need for WiFi or Hotspot for me as I've used PdaNet (now FoxFi) for a few years now.
Works great before and still does. Why fix something that isn't broke.
