Turn Your Android Smartphone into a Free Hotspot Using PdaNet+

Recently, I was sitting in a public park near my home working on one of my writing projects. Regrettably, I was unable to browse the Internet on my laptop because there wasn't a free hotspot near the park that I could access. I wanted to use my laptop to do some research and I didn't feel like going to the neighborhood library because I enjoy the freedom of working outdoors. My cellular phone provider is Virgin Mobile and I decided to pay the $5.00 fee for 1 Gigabyte of mobile hotspot data usage. I was able to tether my Android smartphone with my laptop, but within one hour, Virgin Mobile barred me from using the mobile hotspot service and indicated that I had used up my 1 Gigabyte of data.

Well, let me tell you how frustrated I felt after I called Virgin Mobile to find out how I could upgrade my Basic plan, which includes unlimited talk, text, and 5 Gigabytes of LTE high-speed data for $35 per month. Virgin Mobile suggested that I upgrade to their $45 per month cellular plan because the service includes 10 Gigabytes of LTE high-speed data. I didn't want to spend an extra $120 per year just to tether my Android smartphone with my laptop computer. So, I decided to search online for another cellular phone provider that offered an inexpensive unlimited data plan that I could use to turn my smartphone into a free hotspot without paying any additional fees. During my Internet search, I discovered some interesting information about free hotspot apps for Android devices. I also read an article on Lifewire.com called, "Step by Step Instructions For Tethering Your Android Phone Using PdaNet+" written by Melanie Pinola.

At first, I felt skeptical about downloading the PdaNet+ app on my Android smartphone, because I didn't think it would work. Then, I learned that millions of people were saving thousands of dollars each year using the app to turn their smartphones into a free hotspot. After I read this information, I decided to download the app on my smartphone, laptop, and tablet. I couldn't believe my luck and I was amazed by how easy it was to install the PdaNet+ app on all of my devices. I didn't experience any problems turning my smartphone into a free hotspot and pairing it with my laptop. If you decide to download the free hotspot app on your smartphone, make certain that all your other devices are fully charged so you will be able to work as long as possible.

I am very satisfied with PdaNet+ and I wanted to pass this information along to help people save money on their hotspot data plans. I even paid the $7.99 fee for the full version, which allows me to stay connected to the Internet, without any interruptions while the service is transmitting data. You can download the PdaNet+ app from the Google Play Store and try it out free. I'm glad that I did and I am telling all my friends about this budget-friendly free hotspot app.
