    Here's something u guys may like. Here's a really simple way to get free tethering ,I haven't tried this for myself yet but someone just confirmed that it does work. Turn on hotspot dial* #*#info#*#* then turn ur radio off and back on and that's it. When u finish dialling a menu pops up and under one of the tabs is a option to turn ur radio on and off

    It works. but it looks like we have to do that step every time we restart the hotspot.

    I was testing the speed between this method and the wireless tether app, the app is slightly faster.
