    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.

    I'm using it right now. My iPad Air is tethered to my Moto X. I don't require it too frequently but it's sure nice to finally have it working.

    I'm on Verizon but seeing posts like this make me hopeful that vzw motos are next.

    Agreed. I dont want to get into rooting just for free tethering. A workaround like this for VZW would be great,

    I came across the same issue using AirVoice - adding 'dun' to the APN. I never considered it a workaround though... I just considered it "proper configuration".

    Regardless of what you call it, it's good to know.

    I am new to setting these things up, but my APN Type shows "Not set"

    I can Tether (unlimited data) just fine as it is, so, should I add in that line anyway?

    Forgive my ignorance please, but how do you append the APN type?? Where can I even see that?

    Thanks.

    If you want to edit an existing T-Mobile LTE APN, go to Settings -> Wireless & Networks -> More... -> Mobile Networks -> Access Point Names -> Then just tap on the fast.t-mobile.com one to open it for editing -> then hit APN type (it's closer to the bottom of the list) and add ,dun to the end.

    With Sprint, a Nexus 5 bought directly from Google isn't blocked from activating the Bluetooth and Wifi hotspots.
    You can actually connect the devices to it without a problem.
    Accessing the internet from a hotspot connected device is another story.
    It doesn't work. It's blocked.
    Was hoping someone else had run into these and had a solution for it.

    How do you know the tethering is unrestricted after doing this? What indicates that it is?

    After you go over your Hotspot data limit it doesn't cut off.

    I have Sprint too and it would be nice to be able to do something like this. I tried PDAnet. It would connect my devices with BT but not work.

    Awesome!! Also works with MetroPCS whose GSM phones run on T-Mobile network. $60 unlimited LTE w/ tax and fees included and now tethering is there a better deal out there.
