    Hate cellphone carriers and services like tracfone and straighttalk. My Galaxy Precedent does not have the capability to be turned into a hotspot. Jerks. Hate the world of business and how they have to absolutely block hotspot capabilities or it will throw our world into fiscal chaos apparently.
