Found a possible issue with this fix. When I have the newly created APN enabled, I cannot send an mms. When I select the original APN and try and resend the mms, the mms goes through.

Anyone have suggestions?

Does this still work? I've tried it and it didn't work for me when trying to go to amazon.com. I've also tried deleting the default apn and removing the apn type. I've even tried using wap.voicestream.com as the apn. So far nothing works.

My issue with the APN and not being able to send MMS, may have something to do with me being on Tmobile prepaid plan.

I can live with it this way. I very rarely use the tethering. So, if all I have to do is go in to the settings and switch the APN for the few minutes I use the tethering, I can live with that

tethering workarounds
Regarding the new tethering block, there are a few other workarounds that worked for me.

1) Change your user agent string to something mobile on your browser
2) Browse through an encrypted proxy (work VPN works great for me)
3) Use the internet for things other than HTTP and you'll be fine. (HTTPS works fine)

Confirm that it worked for me. I entered the new APN and restarted the phone and now it works like it did before. Thanks!

Wow I feel both dumb and extremely happy all at the same time but I got it to work! I never restarted the phone before so I guess my phone never properly set up the APN.

The way I got it to work:

1. Selected Default T-Mobile Data APN
2. Delete all of the information from the APN type
3. Reboot Phone

Thanks for reminding me to do the simple things!

Looks like the fun is over...
I had been using Wifi tethering for root users and it seemed to allow me to use it just fine. All of a sudden this morning it stopped working and I got a push notification to my phone about mobile hotspot access being blocked. Came here, found the APN settings in this thread and tried it. Worked for about 30 seconds before the same thing happened again.

Looks like they are being pretty hardcore about it now...

Anybody else experiencing this or know how to get around it still?
