What is Mobile Hotspot, and how do I use it on my Samsung Galaxy Note® II?
Portable Wi-Fi Hotspot
The portable Wi-Fi® hotspot feature allows you to share your mobile device’s data connection with other devices by turning your device into a wireless access point. You can connect up to ten wireless devices via Wi-Fi.
Warning! Using your mobile device as a mobile access point is data-intensive and will dramatically reduce battery life. It is recommended you contact your wireless carrier and ask questions about availability with your current plan. It is also recommended you keep the device plugged in while the hotspot feature is turned on.
From the Home screen, touch Apps App Icon > Mobile HotSpot Mobile Hotspot > Mobile HotSpot.
