    I put cyanogenmod on my phone and now my t-mobile account information says I have 2.5 GB of tethering. Is it a coincidence since I put cyanogenmod on the phone and played with the tethering or did they just start giving prepaid tethering?

    You're on prepaid, right??

    Looking into this right now. My $30 5GB prepaid plan has just popped up to say I have 100MB of tethering. Anyone else?

    Yes prepaid. I'm back to touchwiz and I still have it and the t-mobile tethering app works.

    I had the $30 Walmart deal while at my condo in Sep and tethered with my Nexus 4 no problem. Used 1.8gb and I would say all but about a couple hundred MB was tethering to my Nexus 7 and laptop. Kept wondering if they would cut me off or throttle but they never did.

    This is some awesome news, I just checked with T-Mobile and yes, we have Hotspot active, whatever plan you have you can use that to tether or if you have the 70 plan you have 2.5gigs...

    I haven't tethered since I got the galaxy note 2. I think I've realized why, it's so big I don't need a tablet.

    supposedly, but when connected, my computer browser kept being directed to T-Mobile sale page as if I don't have the service.

    $60 prepaid plan

    btw: Did you guys actually try to turn it on, connect to it and see if internet works properly on your laptop/desktop, etc? I kinda think I am not the only one having this problem.

    So TMo is just messing with me or something? I will call them every day until its fixed. I have unlimited minutes anyway, lets see how long it will take for them to get this simple thing right.

    On the website I don't see that the $60 plan gets tethering.

    I call tmobile so many times, I'm pretty sure it should have this function.

    I bought my Galaxy S3 about 6 months ago and I was already a customer with Metro PCS and now T-Mobile. I an on a $50.00 plan it's supposed to include unlimited talk, text, data and the first 2.5Gb of data @ 4g speeds after you reach 2.5Gbs of data it is suppose to go to 3g speeds. So far I always receive a text from Metro saying I've reached my 2.5Gb of data and now will be on 3Gb. I'm no expert but if my phones 4g symbol doesn't stop showing the 4g up and down arrows blinking and I very rarely ever see the 3g symbol. Also I've been able to tether my connection since day one on this plan. If Metro does slow my speeds down why does the 4g still look like its working and I don't notice any drop in speed?

    4g HSPA is 3g technically.

    Are you seeing 4g or 4g LTE as the symbol?

    First, are you using a Metro pcs phone, or a tmobile phone? They are different.

    Either way, data throttle is done via server side, what "G" signal you get does not matter".

    Prepaid gets this as well as domestic data roaming. Although the roaming part does not seem to be fully working yet. I was in my favorite dead zone today and for a few min I was roaming on AT&T with data. Then got locked out to emergency calls only.
