How To Enable WiFi Tethering On Sprint Galaxy S6, S6 Edge

Samsung’s Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge are Samsung’s most powerful and most beautiful flagship devices so far. Both these devices may be Samsung’s very first devices to have a premium build and design. Galaxy S6 & S6 Edge come under a hefty price tag, but you can get any of these devices on-contract from any carrier like At&t, Sprint, Verizon, T-Mobile or any other.

Carriers allow you to own an expensive device on-contract by paying a very little amount initially, but you’ve to face some limits as well. These are the days of internet, and LTE, 4G and 3G are almost used by everyone, that’s why carriers provide unlimited or heavy data buckets. But carriers do not allow you to use your device’s data plan on any other device. This may kill one of the main utilities of a smartphone like S6 or S6 Edge. Owning a carrier branded device won’t let you use WiFi Tethering, so you will be restricted to use all of your data plan on your smartphone only. Even if some emergency arrives and you got to use your smartphone’s internet on any other smartphone or computer, you won’t be able to make your device act as a WiFi hotspot due to this restriction set by carriers. At times, you’re not able to finish the complete bucket while you’ve paid for it, the best way to consume it to use the internet on a computer by making your smartphone act as a WiFi router.samsung_galaxy_s6_s6_edge
