hmmm … I’m confused. You should be able to use your cellular provider to get online with your phone, then go to the Play Store. Are you saying your Samsung Galaxy has no Internet connection at all?
Turning on the hotspot is to use your cellular internet for your computers to get online.
Try watching this video about downloading apps and see if it helps. If not, tell me more.
According to FoxFi, the Samsung Galaxy S3 should work ok with FoxFi unless it is on the Android version called Jellybean. See http://pdanet.co/help/devices.php

Do you have a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2, 10.1?? If so your’s should offer wifi.
Mine has wifi (no 3G) and I use it with any wifi system. Go to settings (tap notifications bar (to the right of SAMSUNG)) and scan for a wifi signal. At home I use my home wifi signal. On the road I connect using my Droid Raz running PDAnet. I also downloaded the PDAnet Tablet app on my Samsung. It hooks right up to my Droid’s signal.
To install apps on your Tab use Google Play and/or Samsung apps. Both are built in.
