Tips Tricks & Warnings

  • Tethering will drain your battery quickly. You may want to keep your phone plugged into its charger while you’re tethering so it doesn’t die, and you’ll want to make sure you turn tethering off when you’re done using it.
  • The data you use while tethering will count against your data plan. Be sure to watch your data usage carefully so you won’t be charged with overages by your cell phone carrier.
  • Set a password! If your network doesn’t have a password, anyone within the network’s range will be able to connect and browse the web.
