I found this in Sprint note 3 section. Used it on wifes phone. I will confirm this also works on note 4.
All credit goes to idone. Not my work. Just sharing here.
You MUST BE ROOTED.
Download sqlite editor. Open sqlite editor, select files. Then
/data/data/com.android.providers.telephony/databases/telephony.db/
Select carriers. The last 2 lines (APN2LTE internet) and (APN2 EHRPD internet) you will see (default,mms), add ,dun.
It will look like this
default,mms,dun
Make changes in both lines, reboot, enjoy.

Native Hotspot works perfect on stock rooted with the GalaxyTools app. GalaxyTools is what most people are using to get native hotspot working. It's super easy(it's an app, so it doesn't get much easier than that), and it includes other useful features as well.
FYI, idone is the developer of GalaxyTools https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...one.galaxymenu

I know I have it. This is just another way to do it so you dont have to use an app. Correct me if im wrong. If you use Galaxy Tools and delete app you delete hotspot mod.

Look guyz... If you talk to sprint, native hot spot is now a free add-on. No more need for the hack.

Where did you here that. We called sprint last week. We was told $20 for 2gb, and $50 for 5gb. And 5 cents per mb overage.

I found it on my new bill and called sprint. Told them, HEY! I don't want that and I don't want to pay for it. Answer back was it's free. All you have to do is ask. Straight from sprint. That's my story and I'm sticking to it. My experience.

Ok, here's the word... Just talked to CS. if you upgrade phone and change the plan to a lower cost plan it gets thrown in. Sorry if I caused any confusion... My bad

EDIT : what sprint now calls a share plan... Less data but $30 a month less. No biggie for me.

Np. I was curious about it. My wife wanted it because att uverse pissed us off so we ditched them. She wanted to be able to pay bills on pc. This hack i posted here is perfect for her. She doesnt know anything about rooting phones and all these apps. For her less is better.... (Dont tell her I said that...roflmao). Im not giving up unlimited for anything. So hacking works for me.
