Exclamation damn! unlocked phone sm-g900a hotspot not work

I'm from Venezuela, I have purchased a mobile unlocked at & t "galaxy s5 sm-g900a" but as I do not have att sim, apparently I can not use the hotspot.

There is no way to run the hotspot with another carrier?

when trying to enable hotspot says "mobile data is not available or is not a valid sim"



edit: only works through USB.

yes, works great with EasyTether with USB, I've been able to connect via USB and have internet from there.

I'm missing is wifi audit.

Hey I tried fox-fi at work yesterday (I work at hhgregg) to try to provide WiFi to a laptop and it wouldn't work for me. It asked me to install pdanet+ first so I did and it still didn't work. Any way to get WiFi hot spots with this phone without root?

no way, I've tried everything to make it work for wifi and nothing, is completely blocked by the software layer at&t, only works for USB.

I downloaded and tested all applications for wifi tether, and no work, same error.

Well good news, geohot achieved our root at&t.

Now, as you can unlock the hotspot feature to use internet with another operator.

I remember a atrix 2 at & t, was modified somewhat in the system folder, but with this phone do?
