If your rooted then theres various ways to bypass and if used together chances are good you won't have to pay 2x for data: modifying your apn to allow dun type, adding the line: net.tethering.noprovisioning=true
to your build.prop and finally using adb from a PC (u can try this even if not rooted) type the following from cmd or powershell: "adb shell" followed by "settings put global tether_dun_required 0" without the " "s and restart your phone n hopefully that should do the trick.


If still throttled by TMo go into Magisk and install tethering_enabler or TTL tethering modules. These modules weren't specifically made for the 6T but they should still be effective. If still unsuccessful then modifying the TTL from the device your trying to tether to will help hide the source of data aim for TTL of 65 to confuse tmo.

If your not rooted then use PDANet USB tether to a PC and hide tether options then create a hotspot from the PC your USB tethered to or use the WiFi Sharing option in PDANet PC Menu. At least thats what works the best for me and I've tried many many things... One other possibility if your on stock no root is to add a new apn with all the same info as normal fast.tmobile.net lte apn only enable MVNO type to GIO for apn type leave it blank and save it. This should hide the default TMobile apn (and make the editor think your using a 3rd party like Mint) now go back and edit the new apn and under apn type put: dun,default,mms,supl try and save it. It should error n say dun not supported... Press Home and force close settings-reboot phone. The dun sometimes will stick if this method isn't patched yet I'm sure it will be soon.

Your final options are to use an app from playstore like VPN Hotspot or VPN Tether they might slow your speed a bit but they should tunnel all your data thru a VPN confusing TMo as to the origin of data. Probably the best and easiest way is by using a custom ROM as most haven't been tainted by Google's latest CarrierConfigManager commits or carrier apn restrictions. If anyone knows how to reverse these commits easily or any other methods not listed please let me know.


I'm currently looking for a clean TMo only dun enabled apns-config.xml so I can overwrite the default n modify the build.prop for a quick fix on any new ROM or update...

As you can probably tell being throttled or having to pay 2x for the same data is a pet peeve of mine and I've spent some time researching the topic. I'd love to hear what ended up working for you or if anyone knows a solid method I missed. Or has a recommendation for a good ROM with unlimited hotspot features built in for the 6t let me know. If any of these Bypasses helped you hit the thumbs up so I don't feel like I wasted hours of my life making this guide

It uses NetShare app which works very well.
I have grandfathered unlimited data plan from tmo. No cap, no throttle, no video compression of any kinds.

Right on what's the no cap no throttle unlimited run you a mo? I'm paying $25 for a one business plan it's unlimited but after 60gb they can slow u down and after 10gb of hotspot they throttle you to 200kbs lol but hey for $45 a mo they hooked me up with Netflix n my 6T lol still saving $15 from my old MetroPCs unlimited. But with the rooted bypass installed n the signal boosting hack I figured out I was at 430gb data and 217gb tether-hotspot last mo

Now, they call it Unlimited Nationwide 4G

Adding the build prop line and adb shell command didn't work for me. I'm not sure how to change the apn setting you mentioned. I going to try wifi tether out. Used to work back in the day. I'd love to find a way to get around the throttle limit.

I actually have the same plan. Didn't know it was discontinued until today for new signups. Kinda a bummer but I'll have to keep it in mind that I may not be able to get it back so easily. With that said they do sometimes send me the notification about the 50GB deprioritization/throttle but in my area I rarely ever see any kind of actual hit.

I can't figure out why but both my 1+3 and 1+6T have no limits on bandwidth out of the box. I can tether full speed and watch video with any resolution. I tried this unrooted, rooted, factory reset, even T-Mobile ROM. It was not like this a few months ago.

Signal boosting hack? You have peak my interest, where can I find more information? Nevermind I found it here, but thank you for letting me know.

I tried this but it's become more than a quick xml mod as Google's forced various carrier check calls into their OS and it seems most aosp brands have incorporatated these checks blindly into their ROMs as well. If anyone's able to get a rom clean of carrier checks or knows of a kernel that will bypass these and willl keep a steady ttl of 64 plz post details. Otherwise the only success I had outside of pdanet tethering was to root and force a ttl with an app like ttl master yota 4.0 and running ttlpatch on your PC (Google those names for downloads) your kernel needs to accept iptables old versions if ne1 has a more upto date ttl modifying app that supports newer iptable changes (off the top of my head I forget what they are plz post) If I get around to it I'll try n write up a lil magisk module or app for easier forced ttl on Android 9+ ROMs but this or a faux VPN would be easiest way around any restrictions put on by carriers... Hope this helps a lil
