Miracast. Dose you phone and TV both have Miracast built in. Use that

It isn't quite clear what you are asking. Do you want to use your phone but have it mirror its display on the TV? This is easy to do for many phones. Some more detail such as phone and TV type would be useful.

Basically you want to connect phone to TV and use mobile data.. Are you really unlimited? If so the Miracast will do it. Many devices these days have Miracast built-in. The other way is to get an adapter to plug in hdmi TV port. This will depend on which phone you have as there are a few different sorts. I would go with Miracast though. Post you phone and TV models for more more specific help if you get stuck.

If you want your TV to use your mobile data you can setup your phone as a mobile hot spot in the settings but make sure you are allowed tethering and connect the TV to the WiFi hotspot you just created on the phone

No Miracast with Samsung j5.. You need a MHL micro USB to HDMI converter and a hdmi lead. Cheap enough on amazon or ebay. Get the one that works with you phone. Not sure how well it will work though as a low spec phone

​tethering is not unlimited

​tethering is not unlimited


If you have (genuinely) unlimited on-handset data allowance, that can be expanded to unlimited tethering when using FoxFi hotspot on an Android handset.

​Don't think using the adapter is classed as tethering though? Tethering is using phone as a mobile Internet connection via USB port.. Or to put another way, transferring an internet connection to another device, this is just sending a Tv signal to tv via hdmi adaptor.

I'm not sure I understand fully, but I usually use my chromecast device and cast screen on my normal TV. On the 4K one I can mirror the screen but don't need an app (I have a Samsung S5) - there is a function on it that allows me to mirror the screen without an app. Not sure if that helps, I've heard the J5 isn't that far off a S5 so guessing the programmes are the same.

​is it anyhow can be connected with Bluetooth



​No, not with steaming video and audio. Bluetooth is more for a mouse or keyboard. Music to headphones. Low data usage hardware.

amazon firestick does this I think.

Is it possible? Android is probably flexible enough to create a proxy/VPN to route the mirror/casting app over the internet to a second internet connection plugged into your TV via ethernet.

Although you might have the create a fake wi-fi device on the phone to stop the app complaining it's not enabled/in use.

So yeah, I would say it's likely possible. I wouldn't expect it to be simple given how strange a request it is, and there are almost certainly easier ways to achieve whatever result you're after.
