Questions and Answers

Yes, I need an internet connection for my tablet computer and phones without a hotspot so I can get rid of my carrier?

I need to get rid of my carrier and have the internet through a different carrier because they are trying to control what I do on the internet.

Whether or not you can get rid of your carrier and use the same devices depends entirely on who your carrier is. If you live in the US, for example, and you're on Verizon or Sprint, you won't be able to bring your phones and tablet to AT&T or T-Mobile -- and vice-versa. However, if you're on AT&T or T-Mobile and you want to switch to the other, you can; you just won't get all the same data speeds as you were on the other one. It's a similar process for Verizon and Sprint, though those carriers may or may not let you use your same device since each carrier's devices are set up for their network, not the other one's. Take your devices into the nearest store of the carrier to which you want to switch. They will let you know if you can or cannot switch to their network with your device and, if you can, will help you do so.

Why can't I share my WiFi hotspot connection?

I turn on WiFi hotspot and it keeps saying my data is not turned on while it is, and that my SIM is invalid?. I have tried: I've tried turning it on and off with my data too..restart..downloaded an app for WiFi hotspot. I think it was caused by: It worked at first but then it stopped since I used a share-it app which won't work either
