I have Tasker installed now. How do I set this up to achieve the goal?

No, I do not. Is there a free version I can test? This is not a free app. I might want pay for it but only if I know for sure it has what I want. Oh and yeah... I'll see what I can do about that crux.

An app solution would be acceptable too. It doesn't have to be implemented in the system.

comment What is CP and AP and what are these options used for?
My Samsung Galaxy S4 Plus was already set to AP mode by default. It's like a regular smartphone you buy in a retail store without a contract. But mine came with a contract actually. It appears that only operators in the USA use the practice of selling the same devices under their own brand name, and they seem to like setting it to CP mode to tie them in closely to their network. I know for instance that almost all Android users who complained about USB Tethering not being available to them were from USA. This was never disabled on our European devices. Regardless of contract.

It appears to me that this comes down to having the phone behave and operate more closely like a cellular network device (CP), closely tied to its network, or as a mobile computer (AP), with a more independent spirit. It's like comparing a dumb GSM phone of the 1990's on a cellular network with telephone function only, and smart-like PDA devices that resemble mobile devices of today.

I found one clue about CP/AP, and it's from a discussion at Android Central. One Galaxy S4 user with AT&T in the US had to use this service menu to switch from CP to AP, in order for Samsung Kies software on the PC to recognize his phone. It kept saying SGH-I337 does not support initialising. It seemed to have something to do with a custom bootloader by AT&T, and it was probably set to CP mode by default. That's a clue, but not a clear fact. Switching it to AP made it recognized in Kies.

The code to get this screen is #*0808# for Android 4.2.2 and above (if I recall correctly). In case someone else wants to try it.

Can you please tell me what these CP/AP options do? You have explained the abbreviations and that CP is one component inside the phone, and AP is another. I thank you for that! But what difference does it make which mode is selected? Surely, both CP and AP are enabled in hardware? I tried looking for this info on the XDA forums link but didn't find anything more than a reference to it, and I did a term search in the book mentioned above but got no hits.
