Tether And Share Data With Other Devices
If you’ve subscribed to T-Mobile’s unlimited 4G data plan with no contract, your Nexus 4 can be very useful if you tether your data with other devices. You can create a portable Wi-Fi hotspot at home or anywhere you want. I don’t want to over-emphasize the importance of tethering but I will walk you through setting up a Wi-Fi hotspot.
Step 1: Pull the Notification Bar down.
Step 2: Touch the icon on the top right corner.
Step 3: Tap Settings.
Step 4: Choose More…
Step 5: Touch Tethering & portable hotspot.
Step 6: Select Set-up Wi-Fi hotspot and choose WPA2 PSK.
Step 7: Key in your password with, at least, 8 characters and touch Save.
Step 8: Now check the box located to the right of Portable Wi-Fi hotspot option.
You can now share your connection to up to 8 devices.
As of this writing, only T-Mobile offers unlimited 4G data service for $70 without a contract, although there is also a contract-free data plan offering for $30.
Sprint, on the other hand, also offers a $70 per month prepaid plan for smartphones with unlimited voice, texts and data.
Depending on your needs, you may choose the plan that will suit you.
