If it was blocked by metro. It would of told you. Try a different WiFi app.

Might help with the useragent change.
Is Metro finally blocking wifi tether? (update: YES!)

The only soultion to bypassing tether block by metro is by following this tut and the one posted on the same post

Using internet Explorer with wifi-tethering

Quote:

Ok first thing first download user agent picker free from this link:

Code:
http://www.enhanceie.com/ietoys/uapick.asp
then once its installed open ur browser go to tools then toolbars then customize and u should see UA in blue on the right side select it and click move up till u see it on ur browser top right corner. now click UA icon on ur browser and erase what u see and copy & paste this into that box

Mozilla/5.0 (Linux; U; Android 2.2.1; en-us; SCH-R910 Build/FROYO)

or u can also use any of the preloaded user agent code that is mobile like iphone, or window 7 phone.



click save changes and your good to go! to close that box after ur done making changes just press esc, to revert back to default browser tag just erase the user agent in the box and press save changes and it should be back to default. Anyways thanks to cafonez and TRS-80 For discussing these tags!

There are some user agent strings I saw on here that gave you desktop while allowing you to tether but that was months ago

Well yea some of the sites are in mobile version but Alot of them are able to switch to desktop, the trick with Facebook once u log in through mobile version erase the link on the browser and put Facebook.com and it should be shown on desktop version. Oh when u want to disable the user agent picker u can either erase what's on the white box and save it or put it on a internet explorer user agent code.

They (any carrier) restricts tethering because so many ppl try to use it as their main internet connection which eats up their bandwidth and causes it to be slow overall for everyone. Carrier's networks are meant for MOBILE surfing not PC surfing etc etc.

I lol@ppl getting mad cause they cant abuse something lol.

They don't provide an alternative to no abuse...even if only in areas of the country where they're currently more prepared for it....

I'm willing to pay an extra $50 for wifi tether everywhere....$75 if truly no caps..+ the actual downloading itself(not the streaming) can be at 'reasonably' reduced speed.

So instead i now 'abuse' my internet provider for wifi and pay the minimum to Metro.

In Northeast US the main telcos(time warner, comcast, cablevision) have agreed to share towers so their customers can get free wifi anywhere.
I wonder why Metro couldn't join that alliance-- allowing in turn the carriers to offer branded cellular + maybe even tv over cellular.

I have to disagree with part of your statement, Carrier networks are meant for pc surfing, they sell netbooks and usb dongles just designed for it.

No, it's not what the carriers intended. If it was what they intended they wouldn't clearly state in the terms of service that it is not allowed.

Anyways there's a huge demand for it because it's a convenient technology so most people feel that they would allow it, however I'd they allowed it for everyone, that would increase the total bandwidth used so they would need more towers etc which means they would have to raise everyone's cellphone prices which they don't want to do because the majority of people don't tether from their phones (and unfair to those who are footing the bill and don't tether).

I tether but have never had problem getting blocked and it seems that the people who do get blocked are the ones who tether a lot. Anyways, I agree PG that people who are abusing it shouldn't complain about it.

you apparently didn't read what i wrote. it doesn't say anything in their statement about not using a computer over their network. It talks about not allowing tethering.

no for IE9 you have to download and install this file: Bayden Systems - UAPick

its what they call an user agent, than you have to go into the use agent and put this in the box, Mozilla/5.0 (Linux; U; Android 2.2.1; en-us; SCH-R910 Build/FROYO)

on firefox you install https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/user-agent-switcher/

and then go into the use agent and put that same code Mozilla/5.0 (Linux; U; Android 2.2.1; en-us; SCH-R910 Build/FROYO)

hope this helps you out

Here in Los Angeles and the surrounding areas, you can buy a USB wireless 4G stick from Clear or another wireless internet service provider for about $50. The monthly subscription for unlimited 4G wireless internet service is only $50 a month.

If you are willing to pay an extra $50 for wifi tether, you might as well just get a USB stick. It's easier than tethering. You won't have to go through some complicated setup or playing cat-and-mouth with MetroPCS. Just plug in the stick into a USB port, and you get unlimited internet, legally.

just delete the ".m" in (www.m.facebook.com) and it will redirect to the full site. im sure there's browser plugins that toggle bettween mobile/full pages. Dolphin mobile browser has that plugin.

This is one area where our government could've made itself truly useful by doing whatever it took to ensure 'affordable total' access / coverage- just like for electricity, telephones, etc.

Just this alone for broadband and wireless would've had our economy booming all along...
