How do I use my Galaxy S4 Active as a modem for my laptop?

I'm sure it can be done, just not sure of the setup.

For starters, you need a plan that allows tethering. That'll be either an old-style tethering add-on or a Mobile Share plan (AFAIK all of Mobile Share plans allow tethering).

 

Here's a good walk-through for a regular S4, S4 Active should be the same or very similar in that regard.

Walk-through?  Am I missing a link or something?  Or is your award covering it?  Smiley Happy
