answer 11
Hot Spot using a Smart Phone is always an additional fee. To prevent it from being an additional fee you would have to root your phone (which is never a guaranteed method of success, and you might brick your phone turning it into a giant leather paperweight) Or you could download an application; to do so:
Turn your Smartphone onto Airplane mode.
Turn off your Smartphone.
Take the SIM Card out of the phone. DO NOT LOSE!
make sure that your Smartphone is still on Airplane mode, but turn on the Wifi. NO GPS OR DATA CONNECTION!!!
then go onto the play store, look up hot spot apps (I personally like the FoxFi app, though it is an expensive alternative).
Download the application.
After the application is downloaded, and installed onto your device, restart your cell phone and turn the airplane mode off. This prevents your phone from recognizing your affiliation with Verizon, AT&T, Sprint or T- Mobile, who constrict certain applications from showing up.
:) ENJOY!

Question

Will Best Buy Price Match on the Samsung Galaxy Note 3?

I emailed Best Buy's customer service about the GN3 and the high price tag. It is $70 cheaper on Amazon.com for the same phone. They said that I can ask for a price match in the store. However, the website does not seem to indicate "price match guarantee" on this product. Can you really do a price match on this in the store?

Try calling customer service.
I bought my phone at best buy and then a week later I see the phone price was dropped my 30 dollars. I went back and asked for a price match and they gave me my 30 dollars back. I'm not so sure how it would work in your case but you can always ask at the store or call customer service.
Hope this helps.

answer 5
The Note 3 and the Galaxy S 4 are virtually the same phone; however there are some slight differences. The obvious differences are the screen size, Note 3 5.7" and the GS4 5.0", and the fact that the Note 3 has the S Pen stylus. The Note 3 has a slightly faster processor and 3 GB or RAM where the GS4 only has 2 GB. Aditionally, the back of the GS4 is a slick plastic while the back of the Note 3 has a more textured 'leather-look'.
