    So I don't know how many of ya'll use Metro PCS. I do since 2003. I have been paying unlimited data for the longest time, I never had issues with slow data , but since TMobile took over I get these "over the 35gig data" text messages.
    And I loose internet like no data transfer for short periods of times and gaming just lags , takes for ever to download anything ,but the first 35 gigs are quick.
    So I'm wondering , to all the android gurus , " Is there a way , to shut off the data meter or timer what ever it is. So that the service provider won't know how much data I'm using ?
    Like is there a hack or some type of mod I can do to the phone and tablet ?

    I use anywhere from 70 to 80 gigs a month.

    Your carrier sees everything you use....
    They provide the data and keep a record of it

    Stealing and piracy is not tolerated in these forums...

    nope as far as i know, there is no way to hack it. they have never cracked that. the closest thing was when wireless tethering was something you had to pay for. but most carriers offer that feature for free, so now the devs do not need to find a way to do it.

    Let's keep the discussion civil, please.

    Now to address the question raised in this thread:
    No, unfortunately there isn't a way to prevent your carrier from tracking how much data you have used. That is all actually tracked on the carrier-side of things; even factory resetting your phone will not restart the counter. I know that's not the answer you were hoping for but it's the truth, and that's all we can offer. :)

    I also sincerely witch there was a way..and actually I wouldn't consider that "stealing"..because after all you are paying for the service..that in fact isn't unexpensive and didn't come cheap at all..more over..IT IS THEM the ones that are stealing from us by reducing the speed for a service you are paying full and not at a reduce price..

    This bitches always find a way to screw us over..where is this humanity going to like this???..every day I hate more and more and more and more humanity..

    What else can I say?, that I love it?..I don't think so.
