Or you could side load FixFi. Used that before I even knew what ODIN was.

mrfeuss made a typo, the application was called FoxFi. The app was recently merged with PDANet+; both should be in the play store. If they aren't try googling both and going to their respective websites. They both host their APKs for free.

Edit: Here, I've gotten the links for you
FoxFi: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.foxfi
PDANet+:https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...?id=com.pdanet

In my experience, PDANet+ gave me troubles, so I've stuck with FoxFi.
Hope that helped!

I used these apps and they do work. But only circumvent the carrier partially.

When I try to use a browser (Chrome) I get a message saying I have reached my tether limit and to upgrade to proceed. But apps like Taptu can still get data without a problem. So there is something the browser is sending that lets T-Mobile see it that Taptu is not.

Any ideas? I am specifically trying to circumvent my carrier's limit. I have unlimited data, but there is a hard limit of 500MB a month for tethering, and they will not let me go over that without setting up a separate $20/month thing for tethering.
