How to bypass tmobile hotspot

This does depend on y our phone i would think mainly on your android version. i am not sure if it works with 4.4 but i did a factory reset of my htc amaze 4g and it went back to 4.1. after 2 gigs of wifi i hotspot i get the tmobile screen saying i used 2gig up and need to pay for a plan.. so here is my solution that worked for me.

1. download foxfi from android market and pay for the key. if u dont pay for the key then u will get a limited amount of data u can tether which will defeat the purpose. the key is not alot.

2. install the pda.net program on your pc. this is the important part here.

3. when you open foxifi on your phone you must have your data on then click ethernet. now it will tell you to open it on your pc.

4. this step here is the biggie, right click on the pda.net icon in your bottom right screen of your pc that shows all open programs. it will look like a phone. then go to settings, then hide tether usage and level I. thats all.

5. now back on your phone u can click on wifi tether in foxfi. be sure to password your tethering or others might pick it up (neighbors).

6. i also use my desktop with the usb charger cable from my phone in ethernet mode since i have 3meg dsl my tmobile 4g goes up to 10 at my house and 2mb upload but at my job my 4g goes up to 20 meg. hope this helps u like it did me. also on the android market section it tells you the website for the foxfi and the steps if mines were not clear. i downloaded 80 gigs in a month using my 4g never slowed down or nothing.

How to reset to factory?

I'm not sure of the exact phone you have and there are different methods for each manufacturer.
Essentially though you need to go into the settings and look for an option for "Factory data reset" or something close to that. On Android phones it might be under "Backup and Reset" or "Security". It depends on the version of android you're using and the manufacturer's software.

how do I root my htc cell phone?

Firstly make sure you have fully backed up your phone including the SD card as unlocking will completely reset you phone & wipe the SD Card. remove SD Card if possible, if it's a built in SD Card connect phone to PC via USB & make a copy of it. I can't stress this enough unlocking bootloader & rooting will cause you to lose all the data on your phone & reset it back to Factory Condition.

Open this link (I can assure you it's 100% safe, it is one of HTC's own sites) :- Welcome to HTCdev

To the right of the M9 Image you will see 3 small boxes, click the 'UNLOCK BOOTLOADER', then click 'GET STARTED'

Now just follow the instructions.

Hope this helps you.

unlocking problem

The easiest way to unlock your Android smartphone now is to completely reset it. Doing so will erase all your settings and files that are not stored on the memory card.

Depending on the model and maker of your smartphone (Samsung, HTC, LG etc.) the procedure might be slightly different but the idea is to enter tAndroid Recovery Mode and wipe all data + cache.

For example, to enter Recovery Mode on Samsung Galaxy S2 you need to:
1. Turn off the phone
2. Press Volume Up + Power button until it starts (here is the key difference. The keys needed to be pressed are different. Search on google for [SMARTPHONE_NAME] recovery menu ex: HTC Desire HD recovery menu, Samsung Galaxy S3 recovery menu, etc) 3. The Recovery Mode should show up in some seconds
4. Using the volume keys, select Wipe Data / Factory Reset and press menu or power to select.
5. Select "yes" using the same navigation as from step 4.
6. After resetting, it will return to main recovery screen. Do the same for cache partition
7. After cache partition reset is done, select Reboot
8. Phone reboots and now you'll have to set everything up again, but at least the password is removed.

htc factory reset

With the phone off press and hold vol - and power key until it boots to bootloader mode(white screen with 4 or 5 menu choices) it will either say factory reset or recovery. But you can also do this from within Android in Settings>Privacy>factory reset
