    I honestly don't want to root and install a custom ROM. I do have USB tethering via EasyTether but FoxFi does not work on my phone and I have not found any other way to wifi tether. Any suggestions?

    LOL hilarious.

    I guess the question is, how cute is your wife? :D

    ----------

    As to your question though, why not just root? You don't have to install a custom ROM if you don't want to. All root is, is giving you administration access. You can root and still run the same factory rom you're using now.

    Damn auto correct... Lol. Anyway, the reason I did not work to root is the problems that arise when upgrading via OTA updates.

    Does it have to be a working wife? How about one that sleeps all day and spends all your money?

    Try AAA Tether Free. It discos every 20min unless you buy.

    You are better off flashing and installing the official rom yourself, rather than waiting on att when Samsung releases JB for the S3. I avoid anything att related like the plague. I have every piece of their bloatware disabled, as it's all useless crap.

    Besides, you know how easy it is to do a backup of your stock rom right now, and re flash it anytime you want?

    Install Power Toggles. It allows you to enable tethering from the notification screen and bypasses the AT&T check. Works for me on my AT&T S3 non-rooted.

    PM and I'll Tell you the EASIEST answer.

    I don't want to give AT&T ammunition against us.

    The GS3 is my 2nd android phone and I only owned the one before it for 2 weeks so I'm not exactly an expert when it comes to tweaking my phone :p

    Things were so much simpler on an iPhone and being jailbroken.

    Yes, and Foxfi also works for me. Both had been working for me on AT&T.

    Actually, the bloat from AT&T is very minimal and their messages app runs flawless. I myself ended up deleting more Samsung garbage.

    Wifi Hotspot & USB Tether Pro by SVTP is totally worth the price. That's what I use on my S2.
