Sharing your phone's data connection

  

 

 

Function explanation Sharing your phone's data connection

 

     USB tethering and portable Wi-Fi hotspot are great features when there are no wireless connections available. You can share your phone's mobile data connection with a single

     computer via a USB cable (USB tethering). You can also share your phone's data connection with more than one device at a time by turning your phone into a portable Wi-Fi hotspot.
     When your phone is sharing its data connection, an icon appears in the status bar and as an ongoing notification in the notifications drawer.
