Actually, it is not true that this is disable, but you won't get it unlimited though. If you are on an unlimited plan with Verizon, this should not matter as it will work the same way as before. On the other hand, if you are on a limited data plan, hotspotting should still work, but it will be counted as part of your data plan consumption.

When this happens, the problem is actually not with your device but with your internet connection. It means that it is fluctuating and that it is not strong enough to continue getting connected. What you may want to do is reset your modem and router to free up the system from any clogs.

Also, check your settings because if you setup your Note2 to not connect automatically to available WiFi, that may be the reason why it keeps on disconnecting.

This is a common problem for those who are tied up with Verizon and using Foxfi hotspot after receiving and installing Android OS updates. Here is what you have to do:

  • Reboot your device.
  • Whenever a Foxfi or Samsung Kies update or popup appears, just tap on the "Home" key to cancel installation of new updates.

My Samsung Galaxy Note2 doesn't connect to the internet?

It doesn't show the notification of mobile data either.

If your phone can't connect to the internet, try restarting it. If even after a reboot cycle your phone is still having difficulties connecting to the internet, try restoring the phone to factory settings.

As a final step, if neither of the first two work, you can take your phone into your carrier's local store to get it fixed.

Is it possible to link the Galaxy S3 to a Macbook Air so that calls can be made and received?

Unfortunately, there is no way to do this with an Android phone and a Macbook Air. However, iPhones with iOS 8 and Macs with OS X Yosemite will allow you to do this -- but again, there is currently no way to do this between your Galaxy S3 and your Macbook Air.
