When tethering with data, Is there a way to change the NAT Type from 3 to 2 or 1? I'm not able to talk to some friends in parties during gaming or other activities.

Its mainly used in consoles and changed by changing and tweaking settings in a home router. As far as i know this cannot be done from a cellphone as gaming from a console thru a phone tether is rare.

I think you'll find this will use a ton of data. Are you unable to use a home/business internet solution?

Yeah, our wifi in the building is down and we're moving in two months to a new place. Its not as bad if you dont play as much. As long as im not downloading updates or games, then im ok.

You will use a TON of data very quickly. There is stories of people doing this to play call of duty and getting a couple thousand dollar Data bill in one night. Be careful
