    Hi there.

    I have a problem using Internet Sharing. When I try to turn it on I receive the error "Connection not shared, There's no mobile data connection to share at the moment. Check your mobile settings and signal, and try again".

    The details:

    + This used to work - no, really. It's only in the last few days this has suddenly stopped working.
    + My network operator is Orange (UK, EE), and my plan includes tethering. I've already called them, and they've re-activated tethering on my account
    + My account still has plenty of MBs of data left in my current billing cycle, and I've made no changes to my account recently.
    + I use a Nokia Lumia 800, All available updates installed.
    + I've tried turning the phone off and on already
    + I do have a good signal when I try to do this, with either 3G or H showing, and I'm able to use the internet on the phone itself.
    + WiFi also works fine when I connect to my home network.

    So ... any ideas. I'd rather avoid the last resort option of totally resetting the phone!
    Any help would be hugely appreciated!
