    Looking to buy a Rogers Lumia 1020 to unlock and use on a different carrier. Currently i have a Rogers branded Lumia 900 unlocked. Everything works fine on my current carrier except for Internet Sharing - doesn't work and fairly well known issue. I also know that the ATT 1020's have a similar issue (ATT "broke' this in their custom ROM)

    So before i got out and buy, has anyone tried this yet? Really hoping if i drop $600 + $50 for unlock that I'll actually be able to tether.

    Not sure about the 1020 but its definitely broken for the Rogers 920 on T-Mobile US after installing Access Point. There are posts on the forum where it has worked on some carriers but definitely not on T-Mobile US. Someone using Saskatel might be able to confirm.

    I have used Internet Sharing on T-Mo with my unlocked 920 without any issue at all.

    Have you used your Rogers unlocked 920 on T-mobile?

    Anyway I picked up a Rogers Lumia 1020 outright, unlocked it for $8 using cellunlocker.net, put in my SaskTel SIM, and downloaded Access Point app. Everything so far seems to work perfect, including Internet Sharing (even on LTE). Pretty happy. :-)

    Hi! I want to tell u how to unlock Lumia 1020 AT&T or any operator sharing internet, the only thing u need to do is

    1.- You need to configure ur Nokia Lumia 1020 AT&T in USA COUNTRY, and this is in Settings, Language+Country and there in Country Select UNITED STATES, and behind u will see a bottom that says: Needs to Restart, u will need to restart it.

    2.- Go to Market and search this app: access point
    access point | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United States)

    3.- You can install app froms USA, like Pandora too.

    4.- When finished now u can change your country ( for example, im from Mexico) and restart again (if ur from USA dont do this step)

    5.- At last u need to go SETTINGS and search ACCESS POINT (Punto de acceso en espanol) and u need to configure ur DATA SETTINGs and MMS settings for ur operator (APN TELCEL, ROGERS, T-Mobile, etc..)

    6.- When u finished u need to ACTIVATE that profile

    7.- At last the only thing u need to do is to go to Tethered Wifi or Conexion Compartida and activate it, this is a thing u need to see:

    When u activate Tethered, i will see how many persons can connect to ur Nokia Lumia 1020, if says 5 persons, u hav AT&T locked and u will not share ur internet, BUT if says 8 persons, congratulations!! u unlocked tethered connection!!!

    And thats all! i do it with my Nokia Lumia 1020 At&t and im from Monterrey and works!!!

    if u need help just send me an email: sidemzuga@hotmail.com

    See ya!
