Now, here is the question: Because I don't have phone service, can I tether to make my own wifi signal? (If any of you could also somehow get this to work like a phone, that would be great.) The Galaxy player is rooted, so that won't be an obstacle. I do have a regular phone, but I have the galaxy player for fun. Basically I need the tether because there is no wifi that I can connect to in my school. Thanks in advance.
Ok, just to be clear you're trying to tether FROM the Galaxy player, right?
Does it have 3g/4g/LTE some form of mobile data (besides wifi)? If it does, you should be able to do this. If not, there is no internet connection you could share with the the hotspot.
