    kay sooo this is my first time posting. Ive been lurking around ever since i had a brand new samsung galaxy prevail.
    I found this out by this on accident when i was reading up on how to disable data throttling.

    I have a rooted stock b11 deodexed rom
    not sure if itll work on anything else.

    Get root app delete.apk from the store.

    go to system apps and be sure just to go under junior settings so you will only disable apps not delete them

    find com.android.qualcomm
    should say "unknown,no advice"

    Disable it!!!!!! Done!!!

    i was frustrated because i past the 2.5gig limit and i couldnt watch netflix on my tablet using my phone as a hotspot anymore.
    i tried everything and my dl speed always stayed at .38mbs
    after doing this it shot back up to 2.2mbs

    I hope this helps everybody and i hope this doesnt get me in trouble lol

    this method can easily be reversed by going to the disabled app setting and enabling it again.

    EDIT: reseting the prl will start you back to square 1. also after doing all the above click on connections optimizer. there are no guarantees that it would work but for me and some others it has.

    uh my phone:
    android version 4.1.2
    baseband n861B01
    kernel 3.4.0 zte kernel@Zdroid-SMT
    SW version N861V1.0.0B11
    HW version c7xB

    and i cant find a specific version for root app delete so i dont think it matters

    as far as the application goes
    com.android.qualcomm v4.1.2-20130617.084206.8792

    Couldn't the same be accomplished by using Titanium Backup instead and just freezing com.android.qualcomm?

    you can try it. but the way i described works fine for me. december 18-25 i have 7.92Gb used lol.
    still getting speeds of 2-2.5 mbps
    but i would think any app freezer would work. my data cycle is about to restart tho. lets see how high i can make it :D

    This works for me and I'm on super b13. I was able to load videos I couldn't before. The only thing is I haven't reach my limit yet.

    Yeah, mine shot up over 250k+ then dropped after reboot. I'll check it again after a while to see if was coincidence of timing between reboot and possible other's heavy data consumption on system

    so boost mobile strikes back, my phone went back down to throttle speeds,for the longest time i couldnt figure out how. but boost isnt gonna win this time :) i found how to get around this. i went to system settings>Data usage and scrolled down and found. couple apps that i never saw before called 10201 or 11085, 10056, 17713 ect.

    what i did do to get around this is go back and unfreeze com,android.qualcomm. it seems that if that app is on it bypasses whatever app thatll take its place.
    so go back to data usage and all the apps that seem wierd to you, like only having numbers in its name
    click on them and restrict background data.

    turn your data off
    then go back to freeze com.android.Qualcomm
    turn off your phone
    take battery out for ten seconds.
    reboot and wait till it finishes and then ookla speedtest :)
    this work for me but on some things i may be wrong at so goodluck
    i am now at 17GB of pure mobile usage lol
    and boost mobile.. i win in your face
