If 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.

I installed the app from this thread, https://www.xda-developers.com/vpn-hotspot-share-vpn-connection/. You can also download the app in the Playstore. I also subscribe to Private Internet Access (https://privateinternetaccess.com) and they have an app that you can download from the playstore.

My phone contract has overseas roaming for a number of days but it restricts tethering and hotspot when roaming. The way I bypass this limitation is to run the PIA VPN, then run the VPN Hotspot app, and use the "Repeater" function. This has worked flawlessly sharing my internet connection with other devices..

Be sure you reset APN to default values after you install this new file....

Thanks bro I'll test it out...if it works care if I add it to the main post? Yeah I mentioned the VPN app along with a VPN my only issue with that method is the decrease in speed and some apps/devices don't like the VPN way much. Wish google would stop letting carriers dictate Android or itd b nice if the US would put their foot down and not allow companies to bend us over lock our bootloader's, phone's, devices we pay for or try and swindle us by charging 2x for data or throttle us...

    Well, I know this post is rather old, but I made a Magisk module that does everything for you...
