How to tether your Samsung Galaxy
- On your phone, go to Settings > Wireless and networks > Tethering and portable hotspot
- Go to Mobile AP Settings > Configure mobile AP if you want to put a password on your device. You can also change your wi-fi name so you can easily recognize it on your other devices. Click Save.
- Check the box for Mobile AP to turn your hotspot on.
- Done! There should be a blue wi-fi icon that shows on the Notifications bar.
As for speed, it’s only as fast as your connection (I honestly do 190/kbps for p2p which is not bad at all), and then divide that by the number of devices connected to it.
Sometimes when things go wrong:
- Check that your data is on. Your notification bar should have 3G or H icon. Check Settings > Wireless and networks > Mobile networks to check that Use packet data is checked and that your Access Point Names are set right.For Globe Pre-Paid: http.globe.com.ph

[will try to find APNs for Smart and Sun]
- If you’re using the USB cable to charge your phone, drop down your notifications bar and uncheck the debugging mode.
- If you’re getting an error connecting to your mobile Internet, try to turn your phone on and off.
So far those are the only issues I’ve encountered. I’ve used this successfully to connect my Windows7 work laptop, my personal Macbook Air, and an iPhone4.
Before buying my phone,, I visited the GSM Arena page of the Samsung Galaxy Mini S5570. Glad I did!
