Default Wi-Fi tethering without subscription?

I have a short trip coming and would like to have the WiFi tethering if possible. My current data plan does not have the subscription.

And my phone is not rooted.

Is it possible to have by-pass check for a week?

Thanks

Since the T-Mobile version is basically the same as a Developer Edition phone, can you enable WiFi hotspot on that one without additional fees?

With the Moto X, they seem to know that you're tethering... I as able to do this on my Nexus 4 running < 4.4 but once I upgraded, I wasn't able to anymore...

I haven't found a workaround right now.

My understanding is that there is no work around under 4.4 without root.

Just root and get it. rooting this device was pretty easy. if you do not have the developer edition it will void your warranty though.

I use GFE. Until that thread sorts out KitKat, I'd have to wait.

what about the moto X and 4.3? Were you able to tether with t-mobile without a tethering plan before the kitkat upgrade? Thanks.

I'm on the $30 T-Mobile plan. Tethering worked before 4.4.
