Mobile Hotspot on Lumia 640 with Cricket $70 unlimited plan?

Views: 722 Replies: 1
Cricket Wireless' unlimited plan doesn't technically allow mobile hotspot, but I know it's possible to work around it because I'm able to use it on my Moto X Pure with Cyanogenmod ROM installed.

I'd like to buy a 640 as a backup phone, but only if I can use the mobile hotspot with the unlimited plan.

Can anybody confirm whether it's possible to use mobile hotspot on Cricket's $70 unlimited plan with the Lumia 640? I'm thinking it might be possible with an install of W10M insider preview...

Insider Preview doesn't do anything to unlock the restricted tethering option. W10M/WP check with the carrier to see if your IMEI is authorized to use tethering. I've been poking in the registry to see if I can disable this, but I've had no luck thus far.

I'm on: L640, W10M Fast, Cricket.

If you want to tether without anyone bothering you, FireFoxOS.
