  1. When you use this type of tethering capabilities is it tracked by sprint and counted toward your allowable hotspot data? My plan has 3G of hotspot data per month but unlimited data for the month. Thanks!

  2. yah, I actually returned my S6 and got the Note 5 after reading this. went home, called the sprint store (not the customer service) and they gave me my MSL code without asking why or even who I was. Came home, did this, BOOM! no need to root. Awesome and thanks!!!

  3. Thanks for the information. This process worked like a charm. Unless you root your phone, call Sprint to obtain your MSL code. I told them my GPS failed to obtain a lock and the repair shop advised me to obtain the code in order to reset the GPS

  4. I got the MSL code from chatting with CS on line. Didn’t even need a reason. Too bad it does not work with my Galaxy Note 5 with MM.
