    Can someone help straighten out the current state of free wireless tethering on T-Mobile?
    From this thread there appears to be 3 ways of wirelessly tethering:

    1.) Use UA switcher plugin to emulate an Android phone (works for http(s) only)
    2.) Set APN options to support DUN
    3.) With 3rd party wireless tethering app

    Is #3 still a viable option? If so, does it require an unlocked phone? Thanks.

    Do you know if this works if you have teathering already but want it to come from the unlimited data side?

    Yeah, just confirmed that.

    The Sony software disallows saving the ",dun" in the APN type string. And, rooting this device is not a good option as you'll lose DRM keys which affect functions from the camera to the sound quality.

    But there's also the problem in KitKat 4.4.4 with a flag that is set on a device that indicates what data is requested by device and which is not. And, surprise! T-mobile is the one carrier that is checking for that. So, this ,dun suffix may not work for KitKat users. But I'm not willing to root my Z3 to find out.

    T-Mobile is really locking down devices to squeeze extra $ from customers.

    I have a T-Mobile Galaxy Note 3 and when it comes to editing the APN it does not give me the option to do so. Can you post a youtube on how to change the APN on my device. Thank you.

    I was running it on my note 3. Just manually enter all the info in a newly created apn.

    How did you edit to add the dun? My OS upgraded to Lollipop, and everything is grayed out. It says I'm editing, but doesn't actually give me the option to.

    from pelebkf over at XDA: "Edit the main APN "T-Mobile US LTE" and add ",dun" to the end of the "APN type" (so the it should say "default,mms,supl,hipri,fota,dun") then save it."
    Just tried this on my stock, unrooted, XT1053, and it worked like a charm.
    Still working currently on the T-Mobile $80 a month unlimited everything plan! Thanks so much gone over my 5GB Hotspot Data with no problems, this hack is awesome.

    Couple of questions as i do a lot of remote play gaming with ps4 and this would work perfectly for me. I just don't want to find out that it doesn't work after i have used up everything for the month.

    Did you edit the main APN or create a new one with the same settings? When you look at your usage does it show up as using your allotment? When you go over the limit do you receive notification that you are over or does it simply allow you to continue using it

    Awesome. Worked perfectly for me. The only difference is that my APM is called T-Mobile GPRS. I just added ",dun" to the end of the APN type list and I could instantly tether. Thanks!
