    Guys and gals..I bring you FREE Wifi Hotspot for the Metro PCS Samsung Galaxy S3

    1) Download wifi tether for root users v3.1 beta 14 apk to your phone(you can find it..I believe in you). Make sure "unknown sources" is checked in settings, security
    2) Go to my files, internal, download, and click on the yellow wifi tether icon, click install
    3) Open the app, click menu, change device profile to "Galaxy Nexus (cdma)", hit back, scroll down and check "mms clamping" and "routing fix"
    4) Hit back, click on the Yellow icon in middle of screen, grant superuser permission, and you have free tether!

    ***depending on your computer or laptop, it may not work on your computer. If it doesn't, you have to
    1) Download Mozilla Firefox on your computer and follow the install instructions to install it
    2) Download User Agent Switcher add-on from https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/user-agent-switcher/
    3) Add it to firefox
    4) Open firefox and find your "add-ons"...click user agent switcher, search robots, and chose "googlebot"

    ***This tricks your phone into thinking that your computer is an android device...Now you can tether away..FOR FREE

    Or just use the one in the stock Rom, at settings, more, tethering.
    Password at first is phone number, but you may change it whenever.
    Or use openGarden from the playStore. Should autodetect device...
    Or wireless tether for root users, also free, also on the playStore. :)

    I've been using pdanet myself but it's good to have options.

    that is the best by far, and you can hide data usage also, no need for all the extra stuff to do a few post up for firefox, plus with pdanet you can use any browser.

    You cant because NAT is decided by the network & metro controls the network
