I'm on fido prepaid plan with the $30 monthly 1 GB data add on. My device is samsung galaxy s4. I turn on my mobile hotspot option, turn off wi fi and turn on my LTE mobile data from my settings and my other phone device is able to connect to this hotspot. The connected phone says signal is excellent but theres NO INTERNET. what am i doing wrong?
Solved! Go to Solution.
yes it was a fido samsung galaxy s4 and unlocked. i following the instructions regarding configuring APN settings for androids from here http://www.fido.ca/consumer/content/configure-unlocked-device-guide?cm_mmc=Redirects-_-External-_-Ma...
however i still get no internet on the other device connected to my mobile hotspot supplied by my samsung galaxy s4
To clarify, are you using ltemobile.apn? I've always found those instructions confusing... maybe it's just me.
Also, when you set your first phone as a hotspot, are you still able to use data on that phone?
Additionally, are we sure tethering/hotspot is available for pre-paid accounts? Second-last sentence of full details: Excludes tethering (use as wirelessmodem)

Perhaps a moderator could clarify whether it is available for pre-paid please?
Hope this helps
