    Default Wifi HotSpot works on Std ROM! no root needed

    Create your own APN and set your phone to use this one.

    APN=wap.cingular
    Proxy=wireless.cingular.com
    Port=80
    Uname=WAP@CINGULAR.COM
    PW=CINGULAR1
    MMS Protocol=WAP 2.0
    MCC=310
    MNC=410

    Reboot the phone and now you can turn on wifi hotspot without calling AT&T to activate.

    I have done this on my non rooted inspire and it works.

    This is NOT MY FIND. This was posted over at

    Seems to work. I have some glitches. Seems like the latest one was after a few mins, the connection had to be cycled in order for me to be able to surf again.

    Someone told me if you do this without a custom ROM, AT&T can track yuou tethering without a tether plan and add it to your bill..

    I tried this and while it worked it started sending old text messages to everyone in my phonebook. I dont know if this has anything to do with adding a APN or what but its annoying

    Do you have to be in a 3G/4G area to be able to use it as a hotspot? I live on a farm waaaay out there, 3G is a mythical thing.

    You go into Menu/Settings/Wireless Networks/Mobile Networks/Access Point Names

    Once in there click on Menu then New APN.
    Don't delete the others. Keep them as a backup.

    Default ATT Tracking

    I just did this and it works great!! Another user noted that Att might be able to track you and charge you for tethering, any word on this? Also is there any way to get faster speeds? Thanks for to the people that made this possible!!

    WHat settings are you using for the new APN?
    Sorry, thought this was a single thread.

    Doesn't seem to be working anymore. I had it set up awhile ago, deleted it for a reason I don't remember. Tried to set it up again but now won't work. Also won't save without a name.

    Edit: Well i got it working.. for awhile. Then nothing, I went to the phone and there was a popup "Tethering is not authorized for this sim card number account... blah blah ". I don't know if AT&T detected it or the phone. Kinda scary.

    Default you dont have att tethering meesage

    I had this set up the other day and all of a sudden it was shutting off and id get att pop up saying i didnt have tether plan. i kept creating new apn and it has started working again.. keep trying it still works
    I did read some carriers (i saw tmobile) have begun shutting it down on people ota update . if you are happy with the system youre running on id stick with forum updates and keep att out of your system.

    I live in a extended network area, cant even get 3g until i cross state border from Georgia going into Florida. ATTs coverage map is not all they claim it is. Use their home site coverage map with a large grain of salt
