    go to your carrier and explain the problem

    internet sharing is tied to the sim

    I have 720 and Idea sim, but it is working for me, can you post a screenshot of the setting you are using for tethering?

    if it disconnects after a minute or two then it is the battery saving feature in lumia series(WP8 in general)
    if you are not able to access normal internet even when connected then that needs to be investigated..
    did you try using a different phone... your friend's phone for a try
    you can google as well about adhoc sharing and see if your computer OS works for ad hoc wi fi internet sharing
