Funny thing is, now they allow tethering. I used to run into that issue so I used WSU's VPN to get around it when tethering without wifi, but now that isn't necessary. I tether without a problem with both PDANet and Easy Tether.

When trying to use wifi, my browser on whatever I am using (ipad, laptop, etc) opens to a page saying that "Wireless Tether services are currently not available with MetroPCS".

I also noticed that my keyboard looks different on the phone. So metro pcs must have sent out some update to my phone, although it is still running the same Android 2.3.4....... So I am not sure what happened, but how do I get my Tether ability back?

A couple of people suggested that perhaps my phone is no longer rooted...

As far as I know, it is still rooted. The WirelessTether app goes through the motions, says it has been granted SuperUser permissions, and the phone begins t broadcast the tether signal...... But when I try to use the internet (on ipad, laptop, etc) it takes my browser to this page saying "Wireless Tethering not currently available with MetroPCS". Or something to that effect. How can I know for sure if my phone is still rooted?
I would suggest that you download "Wireless Tether for Root Users" by Muller, Lemons, Buxton (from google play market) it should only be about 400kb and it works on my metro admire. i only have issues when i have no network signal. also, as mentioned in other posts to find out if you have a root phone use ROOT CHECKER by joeykrim ... also from the google play market
