If you are one of the lucky ones who still has an unlimited data plan with Verizon you may make good use of free wifi tethering from time to time. I do not use this personally unless my home internet is down, or I am on the road traveling. I have been known to use tethering in lieu of open wifi networks if staying in hotels or sitting at a coffee shop. If you have a Nexus 5x you are probably wondering how to get your free wifi tethering going. P3Droid has put together a quick video guide showing how to get wifi tethering on the Nexus 5x without any hacking. This does not even require you to be rooted. All you have to do is eject your sim, insert your sim wait 5 seconds then turn on the wifi hotspot. It will not check for your subscription. This works on Verizon, ATT, and Sprint.
