How to Use Bluetooth Instead of Hotspot

Technology is far developing. What we had in the last ten years cannot be compared to what is in the present. There was once a time when it was impossible to use a mobile phone to browse the internet or even share files with other devices. At this time, only personal computers could access the internet.

But then, something happened: Mobile phones abruptly became more useful. They were all upgraded. Now, you can use a mobile phone far more than you can imagine.

Just as it was impossible for mobile phones to access the internet, all things has changed; it is now possible for mobile phones to process internet information in split seconds. And yet, there is still an on-going improvement.

Among the mind-blowing things you can do on this small device called “Mobile phone” is sharing internet access between two phones by the use of mobile data. For instance, imagine there are two mobile phones with the capacity of browsing the internet, but then, only one has the data that will enable a person to browse. It means that, although both have the capacity to browse the web, but the one without a mobile data won’t be given an internet access or connection, therefore, it won’t browse the net.

This barrier has been overcome. This makes more sense if your phone didn’t have the data, but your friend’s phone has. Your friend can share the data with you so that both of you can access the internet.

There are two common ways to achieve this: Bluetooth and Hotspot.

Basically, both work on the same principle. The more common system approached is the Hotspot because of its flexibility. For the sake of this tutorial, I will be teaching you how to connect phones through the Bluetooth tethering.

How to share Mobile Data through Bluetooth Tethering on your android device

We are going to be doing this in steps.

On the Phone with mobile data

Step 1: Go to your phone’s Settings. The settings icon is represented by a “gear”.

Step 2: Move directly to Tethering & Portable Hotspot. Depending on your phone, the process might be different. The end goal is to head over to the Tethering & Portable Hotspot option. For some phones, you will first have to click on the “more” option to see this.

Step 3: Put on the Bluetooth Tethering. You can simply do this by clicking on the option or by swiping to the left or right.

What you have done is that, you have turn on the phone for the second party to connect and use your data.

On the Phone without Mobile Data
This is the phone that wants to tap the data from the other end.

Step 1: Simply go to the default Bluetooth settings and turn on the Bluetooth connection. This is achievable in two ways:
By swiping down the screen and simply turning on the Bluetooth through the settings.
By heading over to the Settings, and then clicking on Bluetooth, and then turning it on. Please note that this is different from turning on “Tethering and Portable Hotspot”.
After it is turned on, pair with the other device whose “Bluetooth Tethering” is already turned on.

Immediately this works, you are already connected. The party with mobile data only has to put on the mobile data.
