Tips How to get Wifi Tether to work (no root needed)

I take no credit for this. @Jt money brought this up in a different thread.
1. Go to the app store and download 'change APN'
2. Open it and click on APN2 LTE internet
3. Scroll down to APN Type and add the text .Dun to the end so it should like this ' default,mms,Dun' without the quotes of course.
4. Then click on the top three dots in the to right corner and click save. Then reboot your phone. Now you should be able to use the stock WiFi tether by going to settings 'Hotspot and Tethering' and turning it on.

I have the $60 plan, the most expensive plan so I could have the unlimited data and just started this plan today. I used the wifi tether app and was downloading torrents and apparently there is an 8GB cap on the wifi hotspot, because now I cant use it and got a text that its been disabled due to reaching the 8GB cap. So we need to figure out another way to tether besides the built in tether. I figured this phone would be more popular by now and there would be roms and all kinds of stuff. Looks like I bought the wrong phone for that. Disappointed in this phone thus far and the hacking community with the lack of stuff available for this phone. Sorry for the rant, carry on.

I can confirm that after you hit the 8GB limit you cannot do wifi no matter what program you try and tether with. The only way I can tether is with PDANet hooked up via USB cable. So if you hit your 8GB limit your only option is to USB tether.
