by breaking it, you simply add APN. same settings and the only difference is change the APN protocol to IPV4/IPV6 then save it.
im a mac user so safari no issues or whatsoever, but on chrome you need to change your UA to safari 5
OK, question from a noobie - at least where tethering comes in.
I've been reading this thread (forgive if I should have done this at the end of the most recent message, not familiar with appropriate
protocol) and want to clarify my own understanding while questioning UA.
I migrated from Verizon and immediately came upon the 2.5 Gig limit everyone is talking about. I found an on-line resource that showed me
how to change my Access Point Name from T-Mobile US (apn = epc.tmobile.com) by creating a new one with apn = ipv4.
Now I'm able to tether without T-Mobile sending me notifications with respect to their 2.5 Gig limit.
Question: Have I effectively by-passed their limit by doing this, or do I also have to look at UA switching? I'll have to admit I'm not at all
familiar with the UA thing.
I'm tethering my Galaxy Note 3, while my wife is tethering her Ipad 4 (using Chrome.)
Just don't want to get hit with a big bill for the extra Gigs.
Thanks a lot.
