I've read several articles on how exactly to do this, but none of them seems to work. I can't root my G Flex 2 (because I have ZV9), so that route is inaccessible. FoxFi initializes but I get a warning that I need to subscribe to a hotspot service. Is there any workaround for this?

  • Which Android version are you using? Why not take the native (built-in) hotspot feature – is it missing from your device? – Izzy Dec 8 '15 at 19:56
  • Yes, but I receive a notification that I need to subscribe to the hotspot service. – Harm Dec 8 '15 at 20:14
  • Maybe your provider detects the "tethering" and wants some extra money. The built-in hotspot feature requires no subscription. Funny that USB tethering works; have you tried the built-in variant of that as well? – Izzy Dec 8 '15 at 20:20
  • Didn't even know there was that option. New to android. – Harm Dec 9 '15 at 21:32
  • Thought so – hence I've mentioned it. An app is not always the only solution :) Guess I should make that an answer for you to accept? Does it work for you? – Izzy Dec 9 '15 at 21:50

I downloaded Pdanet+ and used the USB option, not the Wi-Fi one.

  • I think I may have flagged in haste. Is this an answer or you intended to reply to somebody? – Firelord Dec 10 '15 at 4:17
  • Answer. Solved my issue – Harm Dec 10 '15 at 6:34
