Hello everyone,
I wanted to share how I was able to disable the provisioning check for the default Mobile HotSpot app.

You need:
root and a build.prop editor

Inside your build.prop find:
net.tethering.noprovisioning=true
(this is near the bottom)

Set this to false
Save then reboot and mobile hotspot should work.

I'm on the 1GB plan without a hotspot plan and it works fine for me.
Please report if this works for your device or not.

**stupid question warning**


What does this exactly do? cx

Like, does it make you have unlimited hotspot? 4g data after the 1gb throttle?

I gotta try it, but as I understand with T-Mobile family plan hot spot is included for your data allowance. This will definitely make turning on hot spot much faster.
