My little brother has a moto g and my girlfriend has a nexus 5, they both use the 30 monthly t mobile plan and tethering does not work at all, it takes them straight the the t mobile log in page, We all live in the US and in the 30 dollar plan, tethering is included for free, my little brothers old phone allowed tethering , and that phone was a t mobile phone, not unlocked, so any ideas on the issue.
And is there a fix that does not require root, they dont want me to root there phones yet

Try this app for instance https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...a.tether&hl=nl, there are more available on Google Play that don`t require root.

Well I need something that can connect to ipods and tablets as well.. There has to be a reason why it doesn't work... The tether turns on it just doesn't function correctly

Works here
I have the US 16gb model and now at office where there is no TMO signal -- only wifi is available. I shut off wifi on iPad and was able to successfully tether off the Moto G hotspot using bluetooth connection. It took a couple of times to pair the two devices but once linked, downloaded some emails, checked internet blogs, etc.

When I get home tonight, will try using just data service. I only have 500 mb limit before they throttle down on speed so curious how fast the connection will be.
