How to Get Free Wifi Tether on Your Samsung Epic 4G!

For those of you who want to enjoy free 3G/4G wifi tethering on your new Samsung Epic 4G Android smartphone, simply root your Epic 4G, then follow the directions on the video above.

Basically, all you have to do is to download the free Android Wifi tether app, install it, and start using it!

Is it illegal?

No, Library of Congress has recently passed a bill that says it’s perfectly legal for users to modify the Android operating system to use it however they want to, meaning it’s perfectly fine to get free wifi tether on your Epic 4G without having to pay Sprint.

Of course, Sprint can always block you so don’t abuse it but use it lightly, just use your common sense, I wouldn’t download 5 gigs of Bittorrent stuff like everyday.

For those of you who are going to use your tethering often or needed to connect your PS3, you can try just getting Sprint’s regular hotspot app for like $20/extra a month, not a bad choice either.

    I followed the directions exactly & I got the; Not Root! Sorry, but your kernel does not have all necessary features for running this application. Msg after downloading the tethering app. I used wireless_tether_2_0_5-pre11.apk

    Does this work at all with torrenting? I can browse and use outlook, but everytime try this software and ANY method of tethering to torrent, total download speed seems to be limited to about 120kbps with no upload speed at all! Please help me avoid a cable and internet bill!

    When finished my 64bit windows 7 Dell Studio 1737 won’t connect to my Epic. The epic says that it is tethering but I’m at a loss for knowing what settings to make to my wireless adapter to make the thing work. Any help would be welcomed.

    Library of Congress can’t pass anything. It’s a library, not a government body.

    Seriously, this is the best you can do. Sure hope I can find this information somewhere else. It appears in the video you don’t even know what you are doing and your trying to show us how to do it.

  14. Neil Butler says:

    very cool, i havent done this yet, still worried. I have a extended warranty on the phone through sprint, If I root this for will that be voided? Also, what do you mean by “so don’t abuse it but use it lightly, just use your common sense, I wouldn’t download 5 gigs of Bittorrent stuff like everyday”? and what do you mean ” Sprint can always block you” ?
