There are apps like tetherme and mywi that have a one time charge to use tethering on your jailbroken iPhone. I believe they are $5 and $20 respectively.

So how do we know if carrier is going to charge you? We dont work for them. No one where can guarantee that you won't be charge.

Use tetherMe and yes you can turn on the hot spot and "most likely" tmobile will let you get away with it.

However I know of no way you can teather without the carrier finding out, if they really want to catch you.

Carriers only care, from my understanding, about us unlimited data users. Run up a large usage for the month prior to tethering. It's believed that a sudden spike in usage tips them off...

I've got unlimited LTE (sprint) and I'm up to 3GB in less than two weeks. (Purposefully running it up this one time )
