Default Surf via Galaxy S3 using Bluetooth?

I have searched...but not found a definitive answer. I have spent the last three years paying Sprint $30/month to have wi-fi tethering. They just raised the price on me..so I dropped it. I *do not* want to root my phone, so if someone would be kind enough to point me to a tutorial on how to link my Galaxy S3 to my Galaxy 8.9 Tab via bluetooth and use the internet...I would be very grateful.

I found one tutorial on Google, but the devices "pair" but won't "connect". When paired, I tried to surf the web with the Tab 8.9 with airplane mode on (to prevent my home wifi from picking it up) and it could not connect to any websites.

I tried FoxFi....and it doesn't work at all. (Sprint)

I appreciate the help in advance.

*mods delete* I found that I have to ENABLE tethering on the phone...please delete this thread.


*EDIT - Doesn't work anyway...Sprint is blocking it! As much as I do NOT want to root my phone...they are forcing my hand...I already pay them $230/month for cell service for family plan.
