There are a lot of controversies when it comes with unlimited data plans that are offered by the carriers here in the US. With the Nexus 6 already released, it is unfortunate that consumers will only be getting 99% of the device since it has got the tethering settings removed.
This new move by carriers is to curb abusing the unlimited data plans that can be used on the PC or other devices through the aid of tethering. We personally find this unfair as consumers didn’t get the rights to use their data plans as and how they like it.
On the bright side of things, those on the Google Nexus 6 can bypass the roadblock through some simple steps. The method was discovered by our technical expert and has already been tested with Sprint and Verizon. The result is a success and we expect that to be the same for AT&T and T-Mobile.
To re-claim the rights to tether, Nexus 6 users should:
1. Root their device.
2. Download “Root Browser” from the Play Store
3. Navigate to /System
4. Open “build.prop.” It should give you the option to open in a text editor
5. Add “net.tethering.noprovisioning=tru” at the bottom – without quotations.
6. Reboot and enjoy
