Default Help I can't tether anymore!

I have MetroPCS and I was able to get around tethering by using a VPN, now I can't even connect to the VPN without this thing popping up when I try to click on the network. It's like it requires authentication now. Image attached.

I'm not talking about the upsell page itself, I'm talking about the authentication window that pops us.

MetroPCS/T-Mobile knows if you've been tethering. You'll see this page if you've exceeded your allotment.

The best way around this is to us PdaNet+ and USB or Bluetooth thether.
Relax, go nutz!

PDaNet doesn't work with Mavericks MAC OS X. And I'm not talking about the upsell page, I'm talking about the authentication window that pops up. it wasn't doing this before.

I got a similar page when I exceeded my wi-fi thethering allotment with T-Mobile. I still suspect that this is your problem.

Just because you have unlimited 4g does not mean you get unlimited hotspot capabilities. They consider them separate.
