Samsung galaxy is one of larger sailing mobile phone and tablets in market. It is just because of great and smooth performance of android OS in all galaxy devices. I recently brought a Samsung galaxy tab2 and I also have Samsung galaxy S2 which I am using from last 3 months. Samsung galaxy S2 and tab 2 both is very nice phone and I really love it. I wanted to use Bluetooth tethering in my phone. I have Wi-Fi tethering but it reduces battery very fast. I setup the Bluetooth and pair devices but Bluetooth tethering is not work. Anyone knows how to use Bluetooth tethering with Samsung galaxy S2 and Samsung galaxy Tab2?

Re: is Bluetooth Tethering working on Samsung Galaxy Tab 2

I am also having Samsung galaxy tab 2 which I brought a few days ago. It is awesome device and one of my best from all other device. I want to use internet in my Samsung galaxy tab 2. So, I am using tethering with help of usb cable. You can download Usb tethering application from Google play market. These apps automatically popup the menu for connection and you can quickly connect both device for internet sharing. Before installing this application make sure your device have install usb tethering driver first and after that connect usb cable.

Re: is Bluetooth Tethering working on Samsung Galaxy Tab 2

It produce nice product with android which is all time favorite for young generation. I also have Samsung galaxy S2 which is also nice phone.

Re: is Bluetooth Tethering working on Samsung Galaxy Tab 2

I also have Samsung galaxy s2 which I am using from last six month and all is working fine. I also have Samsung galaxy Tab 2 which I brought before a few days. It is nice Tablet in this range. All the specification and feature are awesome. In Samsung galaxy Tab 2 there is 1 GHz Tegra CPU so it gives good performance also. It has great compatibility for high end games. It also supports HD games too. I am using Bluetooth tethering in between my Samsung galaxy Tab2 and Galaxy S2 for internet sharing. It is working fine. I think you got this problem because you having just Wi-Fi version of Galaxy Tab2. Samsung galaxy Tab has 2 different models one is Wi-Fi only model and another is Wi-Fi with Bluetooth model. If you have Samsung galaxy Tab 2 with Bluetooth then you can use Bluetooth tethering. So, you wouldn?t see the Bluetooth tethering option in your Wi-Fi only model. If you have Bluetooth model then don?t need to root your device to use Bluetooth tethering.
