Angel I need to HIDE my WiFi Tethering!!

I recently switched from a Verizon Note 2 (where I was grandfathered into a unlimited data plan), to T-mobile Note 3, where i only have 2GB of wifi tethering ability. (Not my idea!!!)

I have rooted my phone (I'm completely stupid when it comes to this jargon).
I use PDA Net to tether wifi through USB. This works great because it allows me to hide my usage (using USB tether)! But...I have a surface RT (that is also rooted) that does not support PDA Net.

I need to tether WIFI from my phone to this tablet without my provider knowing. I know there is someway to do this (as I'am hiding my usb tethering now), or another idea on how i can secretly use my carrier's data to give this tablet internet access!

Please Help! or let me know if I should go to the tablet forum for this one.


Thank you so much for you time and advise!!

How did you root a windows tablet? Also the tablet might not even count because its a mobile device

The tablet is not included in my Data plan, actually, it is not on any network's plan. It is a separate device that I'am trying to secretly share my phone's internet with.

I apologize if this is elementary to you, but if you could explain what this app will do it would be very helpful!
