[Q] Bluetooth Tethering
My SGS3 doesn't have the option "Bluetooth Tethering" under Settings/More/Tethering and portable hotspot. I've seen numerous posts/videos saying to simply check that box to get bluetooth tethering working. I want to tether my Note8 via bluetooth to my SGS3 i747m.
Is this option disabled by my carrier (Bell)? If so, with a rooted phone, is there an easy way, on the stock rom, to re-enable it?
Tethering is allowed on my plan, Wifi tethering works fine, but I want bluetooth for the power savings and ability to leave it on all the time with minimal hit to my battery life.
I tried FoxFi, and got bluetooth tethering working that way. However, I found that many apps check for wifi/cellular connectivity, and when there is none (since I'm on bluetooth), they complain about having no Internet access and refuse to work, while other apps that don't check work fine. Is this the case with the built-in bluetooth too, or a side-effect of the FoxFi/PDANet Tablet apps doing dirty tricks to make things work?
