    Has anyone tried to retrieve their MSL/SPC codes from whiterabbit and use QPST?? Or used CDMA workshop to retrieve the SPC code? You may be able to change Mobile IP to Simple IP in the M.IP tab of QPST. Once you do that, you can tether anything. That's how you do it on the Optimus M....as well as the Samsung Admire.

    I'm having troubles trying QPST recognizing the phone. I've done this with no luck "Plug your phone in and let it stay on AS, fire up DM on the phone(##diag#) and wait for the drivers to install by windows or download them if you need, open device manager in windows and find your phone usually under com or serial ports listed as qc diag port or something and find what port it's listed on, fire up QPST"

    USB tether and hotspot work but are slow and only allow google, facebook and a few other sites. There has to be a way to fix this?

    Okay so I finally connected to QPST, (I plug it in, dial ##626* for DM
    then put, 587846 and selected NAM programming. Launch QPST. added the port)
    Now how do I change mobile ip to simple ip? Is it in the IP server tab? I already have my MSL. Thanks in advance.

    QPST sees the phone but not as an active phone so I can't get into it.

    Ok changed the user agent on my pc to this

    " Mozilla/5.0 (Linux; Android 4.0.4; LG-MS770 Build/IMM76I) AppleWebKit/535.19 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/18.0.1025.166 Mobile Safari/535.19"

    Now when I go to many websites on the pc they go to mobile sites instead of full. Any way to change this?

    Other than that tethering is working fine! :)

    Easy way to find your useragent thread go to http://whatsmyuseragent.com/

    Should be the same as I posted for the usb just use wifi tether or hotspot instead. The browsers user agent is what is stopping you. ;)

    Some sites will have an option you can click to get the desktop version. For those that don't, you're SOL.

    So when I first got my phone I could not activate the built in hot spot. Which made sense since I do not have the hotspot feature on my plan. Yet I downloaded the wifi tether from the playstore and ran it once, it installed the config files and binary. Now I can use the built-in hotspot and it's working fine; I have only used it with another Android.
    I'll try using it with my laptop later and post here how it went.

    Did you use the program WiFi Tether for Root Users by Muller Lemons, Buxton. (black background with yellow wifi icon)? or one of the other similarly named programs?

    that's the one. In my experience, with the Indulge, I found that one to be the best.

    Also I tried using the hotspot with my laptop and i can only get sites like youtube and google to load. I'm trying to change the settings to simple ip in QPST but i'm having a hard time getting my phone to show up on a port when I use metropcs's hidden menu to edit NAM
    When I just left it in usb tethering it does show, but the M. IP tab doesn't appear.

    Why pay for the tether!!! Download FoxFi tether w/o root. It works like a charm for me I let my brother use it all the time and I still only pay $55 a month. Ill post a tutorial on youtube to show yall.

    Ive tried to help others in several posts here at the forums and it seems people neglect my replys. If you follow ehat I said you can access any site you want from porn to Warez ect. Not saying that it is good to use those type sites, but just a example. It is sooo soooo easy. Feel free to read my post above. Good luck Motion users!! ;)
