    Go online and check your Verizon Bill every 48 hours or so, you should see if the MHS shows up or not.

    I already have and pay for MHS. One thing I have noticed, unlike my Droid Maxx, is I do not get a "Checking Subscription" when I fire up MHS on the MXPE.

    This is correct. With their agreement they have with the FCC they have to allow any capable phone on their network.
    Wasn't there also a ruling saying they had to allow phones to turn on built in hotspot capability?

    I'm on VZ UDP and I've been tethering. I never added MHS and was never billed for it whether it was me being on my rooted LG G3 using WIFI Tether/FoxFi or on my MXPE.

    There is nothing to worry about if you're tethering. The only thing you should be worried about is when the tethering stops because its blocked or something and you need to get it back. I'm sure rooting the phone will solve that.

    Just go to features within your account and you can add it.
    Woah. That wasn't like that for me the last time I checked. I may have to do that so I don't have to worry about getting my wife a phone that can be unlocked and rooted. She likes her Samsung... but the newer ones on VZW are locked pretty tight (... I haven't checked in a while what the scene is like on the newer Samsung devices, so this might be wrong as well...)

    T-Mobile doesn't offer unlimited hotspot. You will be able to use up to 7 GB of hotspot before it gets slowed down.

    I received my Moto X Pure Edition 2015 from Motorola and activated on my Cricket Wireless account and the hotspot is blocked. My Sony Xperia Z Ultra which I had directly from Sony.com the hotspot worked on Crickett Wireless. So Cricket is blocking hotspot from non carrier devices with newer Androids. Do not know if that is a Android Google or Motorola issue.

    Yes. Works fine right out of the box. I have Verizon with unlimited data.

    Looks like I've been corrected. I thought this was fixed shortly after launch.

    No reason for them to charge for tethering any longer. They make their money on data usage. So go ahead and use it up! Even those on unlimited data are now paying something like $20.00 more per month. So if those with unlimited data continue to use multiple gigabytes of data Verizon will either completely discontinue unlimited data, or they will just up the monthly charge for it again. You cannot win when you're up against Big Red!

    How were you able to edit that file. I opened the file in es file explorer, added the string to the end, and tried to save it. But the saving failed. What was your plan of attack?

    I had to root, and add a line to the end of the build.prop file

    net.tethering.noprovisioning=true

    Now it works fine.
