Oh, the kids these days...will they ever learn...morons
I provided help, and you still continue to ignore it, and you wonder why I am being a jerk about it? The help provided is the answer to your problem, and I guarantee it will help others, stop complaining when you're receiving free advice. I believe you have an entirely different problem and should seek a therapist, sadly their advice is never free. By the way, what advice were you actually taking? You already shot down the other solutions. Hmm, someone who refuses to accept any solution to a problem, seems you're not here for help after all, just complaining like a child.

Most other carriers do the same thing, but it's sort of irrelevant, because T-Mobile does and that's who you paid for your 5GB of data. I think the answers you've gotten have been pretty clear, but you seem to prefer to complain about the policy.
I really don't understand any of this thread, because I just spent five days tethering--about 2GB worth--with no hassle whatsoever, and not on t-mo's tethering plan.
I think we've already established that Tmo identifies tethering by way of non-mobile "browser" user-agents, if you tether and use anything but a non-mobile browser, it should continue to work. One other solution would be to use an SSH proxy server setup at home, then use Putty to connect to the SSH server, finally change proxy settings in your browser to point at the local proxy Putty creates. Not as simple as a VPN, but it's an option.
Tablets are mobile... the block doesn't trigger immediately either. Some tethering apps try to obfuscate or hide the fact you're tethering as well.
well, and that's my point--it looks like FoxFi is successful at hiding the fact.
It being a free Android app, I repeat: I don't understand all the hand-wringing going on in this thread. It's not as if this is actually an unsolved or unsolvable problem.
Not everyone has the option to use such an app...
PdaNet works on pretty much every Android phone out there. Yes, I know that it's USB-only, but not once did T-Mobile bother me when I used it. There is no root required and it should download the necessary drivers automatically.
It should also be more stable, since it's a wired connection.

The hiding features of these tethering apps also include disclaimers, stating "Some web pages or network applications may not work", or will force mobile-size pages in your browser.
I can speak from experience: that's not an issue with FoxFi.
