    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!!

    * Liz

    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.

    is user agent switcher an app?
    Linux data/ info is not useful to me since none of my devices run off this OS. Correct me if I'am wrong.

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

    would an app that bypasses apn restrictions for mobile tethering work for what I'am trying to do? Hide the data usage?
