    As of the latest carrier settings update the Personal Hotspot option is no longer usable unless you pay $15/Mo for tethering. That's where TetherMe comes in. They also use user agent detection however it doesn't block anything but default Firefox/IE/Chrome desktop user agents. There are easy ways to change your user agent with Firefox/Chrome. Most other applications work fine. The other way they detect is by using a special APN for tethering. That's easy to change.

    I have the Simple Choice Plan (T-Mobile's newest, no contract plan) and it includes the personal hotspot as part of the plan, no tethering charges. I think the previous plans restricted the hotspot, and one would have to jailbreak the phone, or pay the $15 per month, but now it is free, under the settings tile.
    On my wife's 4s the phone will serve up wifi access; on my phone it is by blutooth or usb; so I needed iTunes drivers to allow it to work with my notebook.
