I have 2 methods that I use on my phone.
FIRST THING IS TO CREATE THE EXACT SAME TMOBILE APN EXCEPT CHANGE IT FROM IP6 TO IP4.
TO BE EXACT I JUST CREATE A 2ND APN AND IN THE WAP FIELD I USE "fast.t-mobile.com" I LEAVE ALL OTHER FIRLD BLANK.
When I want to send a MMS I just activate the TMobile Stock APN. When I tether I activate my custom APN.
Now the 1st method I use is using the STOCK TETHERING option.
Activate the Stock APN and Turn On Stock Tethering. "This is IF you have the 2.5GB tethering on your account.After the tethering is activated, on the computer you have to use a custom UA string on your web browser. For me I use "Google Chrome" and I installed the plugin "Ultimate User Agent Switcher" and I use the "Kindle" option. This will allow for full web access and TMobile will think your using a Kindle tablet.
Torrents also work since you have the ip4 APN activated.
My 2nd method is using USB Tethering to my PC with PDANet. Install PDANet on your phone and on the PC. And also have the custom APN activated in network settings. In PDANet Settings, go to HIDE TETHER USAGE VERSION 2. This will allow for FULL web use without the need for changing UA Strings.
With this method, I am also able to share the connection to my LAN port which is hooked to my NetGear Router so i can then ((RESHARE)) the connection again to my XBOX and PS3 and other devices allowing them to just connect to my router as normal.
Those are the 2 methods I use. I have LTE in my area and I do about 4MB/s or 40Mbps on average.
For this current month I have used at least 107GB for the month even though my plan is 2.5GB...
Twitter @FiberOpticsRLD if you have any questions, I rarely check my XDA inbox.
He is using the stock mobile hotspot. For some reason he still recieves texts and MMS even though those fields are still blank.
How do I know this is setup correctly and how is he still receiving mms? Thanks
