Enter Pdanet+ that bought FoxFi. For most phones install PdaNet+(FoxFi) directly from Play Store. See https://play.google.com/store.
Rightardia installed the Pdanet + Fox Fi app and then connected a cable
with a micro-B USB end to the Android (the charging port). Put a standard
USB end of the cable into a Linux laptop. An Android icon appeared in Linux mint that also opened the Banshee music player. However, the music player didn't work.

Will the cellular providers be able to stop this? Not likely, because
the Internet default port is 80. If you block port 80, you block the
Internet to the 4G phone.
FoxFi works with Bluetooth, too but your laptop or PC must be Bluetooth enabled. The USB cable solution is simpler and more secure.
If the above app fail to install, it means your carrier (such as Sprint
