    I don't know if you guys know that but if you have t-mobile it comes with unlimited data but after you go over 1GB it slows down from 50mbps to 256kbps but even after it slows down certain music apps and also the speed test app have access to the 4G speed because when i run the speed test app it tells me that my speed is 50mbps when in reality it is 256kbps so I was wondering since some apps have access to high speed data isn't there a way to hack my phone so that everything on my phone can have access to the 4G speeds.. My phone is jailbroken too

    Nope. Tmobile can always see how much data you use. Just pay for unlimited 4g.

    Why is it always newbies with these types of questions?
    No there's no hack to bypass your carrier. They can obviously tell how much data you used.

    Seems like a reasonable question to me.
    Since T-mo allows certain apps to continue to access full-speed data even after they start throttling, it seems at least possible that some clever programmer could figure out a hack that tricks the system into thinking that a music or speed test app is using the data when actually it's being used for something else.
    Of course, if they look they can surely tell where the data is coming from: "hmmm this guys has used 10GB running speed tests.." I'm sure they'd catch on pretty quick, especially if you're abusing it, but you might get away with it temporarily.
    Personally I just pay for the unlimited.

    At least someone read my post and understands... But yeah I was just wondering if there was a way so I could save some money but if not then I'll probably have to start paying too

    Pot, kettle.

    You cannot bypass carrier throttling by doing something to your device.

    TMO is allowing music and speed test to be unthrottled even when the rest of your data is -- not your device.

    Wow throttling at 1 gb seems extreme. One of my plans has unlimited data, but they don't throttle until you hit 15 gb each month. I'm not sure if you consider it pricey, but it's 70 a month taxes in, but that includes all the sms, voice, voicemail, etc. (and all the other little options i never use). It just doesn't include tethering. Tethering would add about 14 bucks with taxes.

    My other plan has 6 gb of data, they don't throttle and they allow tethering, and it is only 60 bucks a month taxes in.

    Both plans are nation wide.

    I'm with you... always the newbies.

    But seriously, can you tell me how I can go to the grocery store and pay for just one bottle of wine, but sneak out with a whole case?

    I bet if he goes to Baltimore someone can show him how to steal data.

    ----------

    Would love to know what carrier you have who gives unlimited data with 15 gb throttling. No nationwide carrier in the US does that.

    People need to relax. Last time i checked there was once a glitch you could do to bypass att throttling.

    You're confused with what throttling is. No "glitch" (meaning patch\hack\tweak?) exists that bypasses AT&T's throttling. I'm thinking you were referring to the "Carrier File Hack" ? That didn't bypass throttling.

    Ask stupid questions.... get harsh answers.

    Clearly you don't. It's like saying there's a way to make the water company send you more water without actually having the water company adjust the amount of water they send you.

    If you understood carrier throttling, you'd understand there's nothing you can do to hack their throttling on your end.

    I'm not sure about ios, but on android, you can root the device, and delete the 'throttle services' files. If the carrier is using client side method of throttling (not all do) then this will stop all throttling. It varies by carrier.

    LMAO get over yourself, http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1637112 maybe you should do research before you get on your high horse and make your self look like an idiot. You obviously don't know what you're talking about. Also your comparison is terrible XD. It's in no way like the situation you have since you are still getting data just at a faster rate.

    See link above.

    Did you even read? It didn't work for most. Was purely psychological. Get out of here.

    Did you read it? They fixed it which is why people said at the end it no longer worked, nice try though.

    Or the fact that 4 of att's 80 million customers convinced themselves that turning airplane mode on then off while doing a reverse pirouette and singing "old McDonald" actually did something.

    Compared to no source on your part. You're all talk, nothing else. Also pretty sure there were quite a bit more than 4.

    This was fixed by AT&T years ago and it only worked on certain iphone devices and on certain ios versions.
    In short there's nothing that the OP can do to avoid throttling or get full speeds with apps that are now allowed to get unlimited full speed from the carrier.
    Its all done on the carrier side and nothing can be edited on the device to bypass throttling.
    You guys can argue over nothing all you want.
    There's nothing available right now, would be nice if it was. We'd all use it but as soon as it would get out most likely carriers would put a stop to it.
    Those type of workarounds don't last forever.
