    Whenever I try to turn on tethering (despite having mobile data enabled and Wi-Fi disabled) it keeps telling me to go to Cricket Wireless and turns off. Why is this happening?

    I do not believe Cricket offers tethering at all.

    They do... At a $10 monthly charge.

    OK, I should have looked first! They didn't used to...

    OP, are you paying for the tethering option?

    That's alright. It is pretty new and I know you are one who likes to keep up with these things to help others.

    Your phone reports your carrier tethering is on. Than the carrier disables it. Exactly this behavior pushed me back to Android. There you can at least fix it:

    Non rooted phone:
    This can be fixed permanently using the following procedure (UPDATE: no root required):
    1.Enable developer mode (Go to Settings -> About phone, and click on the build number until the developer mode is enabled).
    2.Enable USB debugging under Settings -> Developer options
    3.Connect the device with a USB cable to a computer with the Android SDK platform tools installed
    4.Start an adb shell: adb shell
    5.In the adb shell, run this command: settings put global tether_dun_required 0

    Any idea if this can be changed on WM10 somehow?
