Default Hotspot not using VPN connection anymore.

I'm using a stock non rooted Tmobile Note 3. Before using PIA VPN app, with the native hotspot all data went over the secure VPN connection. Recently I just noticed that all phone data goes over the vpn, but tethered data does not. When checking the ip address from my tethered tablet it comes up as a t mobile ip address. Phone browser show a completely different ip address.

Just wondering if anyone else has noticedor has this problem as well? Maybe something just got corrupted on my phone?

While tethering now I'm getting the tmobile up sell page. Using a VPN, or agent switcher used to work fine for me in the past, but not anymore. Are there any not root tethering methods, are still available that work? That will by pass the up sell page, or not count against your mobile hotspot?
