Samsung Galaxy S III hotspot


Samsung Galaxy S III hotspot

I just got hotspot on my Galaxy S III.  When I turn hotspot on it says activated but when I look at the devices connected there are none.  Since the hotspot is on my phone will it automatically be connected and not show because it's not a separate device? How do I tell if my phone is connected to the hotspot.  I don't seem to get any more signal when it's on or off.


Mobile Hotspot allows you to have ANOTHER device connect to your phone through WiFi. So it's useful if you want your laptop to get an Internet connection shared from your phone. It does nothing directly to your phone to increase signal or anything like that.
