    I'm using an unlocked Rogers 1020 with Wind. Everything works fine except for Internet sharing. When I try to switch it on I get the following message : "Connection not Shared. There's no mobile data connection to share at the moment. Check your mobile settings and signal, and try again." Not sure what the cause could be, but it would be nice to know if others face a similar problem.

    Hey. I'm not exactly sure how to carry out the second solution. Those instructions are a bit vague. I have a feeling that the feature may have been locked by Rogers.

    That is my worry to. It is on my L900. I just bought a Rogers L1020 but haven't opened and unlocked yet, trying to get some kind of confirmation that Internet Sharing will work on SaskTel as i still have the ability to return it.

    So, the picture shows model number RM-877, which is as far as I know, the same model number that AT&T is selling as non-pentaband. What gives?

    Did you unlock over the internet?

    Not to keep derailing your thread, but is that possible? If so, how?
    I believe this is ATT's black version's code 059s9t1

    replace it with the rogers one. I remembered there was a guide to how to flash the EU developer's 920's rom to other 920s

    Did you unlock over the internet?
    Yes I did.

    I'll have to test the internet sharing option because I don't have access to wind/mobilicty sim card 24/7 -_- which is a bummer

    That's the model number on the box. When you open extras+info in the phone settings it actually shows RM-877_nam_canada_234 which indicates that it is a variant of the RM-877 model. I'm on Wind and have been using the phone for 4 days now. I can confirm that it is pentaband.

    Is Rogers still doing the $50 unlock fee, or are you guys unlocking from third party sources?

    Ya Rogers will do it for $50, although they say you have to be a customer. I'm going to try cellunlocker.net, says my code is available and for only $8. One thing to note is Rogers says on their site that warranty is retained if you unlock through Rogers. Pretty sure it doesn't actually void Nokia warranty, i think Rogers just wants your money so they try to imply that any other way you will void warranty.

    I got my 8X and 521 unlocked on cellunlocker.net. The first took a couple of days to get me the unlock code, but the 521 took over a month. Sure, it worked first time, but they were a bit slow.

    I could probably just go in with my girlfriend since she's a customer, then? lol That seems rather silly. I'm always wary of websites though, so that's why I'm asking.

    Hi guys!

    Good news. Internet sharing is working.

    I have just tested with my friends Wind sim card. At first it didn't and have me no data connection but when I switched it to 3G from LTE in the mobile setting.

    Try that and let me know

    It's reassuring to know that you got it to work. Were there any other steps involved? I currently have my "highest connection speed" set to 3G since Wind doesn't support LTE but it still says there's no internet connection when I try to turn on internet sharing. I also tried setting the connection to 3G using the hidden field test menu with no luck.

    Yes, I forgot to mentioned that, when the first time I tried it and it didn't work and get the "no internet connection" message. I went into the access point option in settings. Wind will appear and be active, press on it and try again.

    I usually have to do that step when I'm back to Rogers and want LTE as it doesn't seem to automatically do it even if it's on LTE setting in Mobile Network.

    Just wanted to add that the TELUS 1020 has the same bands listed, and the model reports as RM-877_nam_canada_235 in the extra info.

    So far Rogers has been pretty decent for providing updates, how about TELUS? Have always gone for Rogers variants for pentaband use so haven't been keeping an eye on how they handle updates.

    I don't think there's much difference in their update schedules. Maybe a week or two difference. This is totally anecdotal, but whenever I got an update for my TELUS Lumia 800, a co-worker with a Focus on Rogers would get it soon after. In one case he got his update a few days before me.

    Rogers never did release the latest firmware update for the L900 though (that I believe was to come with WP7.8) - perhaps that was fault of Nokia. Because of that I was never able to use Nokia Bluetooth Share app (can't recall what else was in the 8858 update).

    I have tested my phone with a Mobilicity sim and internet sharing definitely does work as seen below.

    20131008_173854.jpg

    Change the speed to 3G

    then go to Access Point settings and just wait till your carrier shows up. It'll say active, just tap on it anyway and try Internet Sharing.

    I followed your steps exactly, but no luck. Could it be something to do with the way I unlocked the phone? I used a code from cellunlocker.net.
    Anyways, I rarely use internet sharing so its not all bad, still would be nice to get that feature working.

    Michael, which store in Montreal did you went to? Apparently, some Rogers store will only sell to existing Rogers customer... and I would like not to have to try all the stores around to find one where I can buy the phone!

    I hear its best to buy at a Microsoft store. Should look for one in your area.

    That's what I would do, but we don't have any Microsoft store in Montreal (or Quebec for all I know). I think the closest one is in Toronto.
