    Bear with me, as I do not know all the correct terminology...

    Currently have a iPhone 4S and looking to "next" to the 1020 - mostly for the manual camera settings... Thats very very intriguing to me... One drawback I have is from when I am not at home and I don't have secure wifi, I have used my (jailbroken by a friend) 4S to be a mobile hotspot, untethered, to provide internet to my laptop. .... Is that a possibility with WinMo phones? What do they call it, how do I/they do it? If it's do-able, I can't wait to switch :)

    Thanks!!

    Windows Phone* (abbreviated WP, just a small correction since WinMo is a much older, different beast.)

    Anyways, WP has an internet sharing option (super easy to find) that works like you'd expect from a Wi-Fi Tethering solution. however, its tied to whether ATT turns it on or off depending on your plan.
    There's a way to get around that, but AFAIK, the ATT 920 is the only one to have that route open.

    I regularly tether my Nexus 7 to my 1020. It works perfectly.

    If you do go for a 1020, you will love the camera. It really is worth switching just for that if you're into photography.

    There are a lot of apps available for camera and manual settings. Nokia Camera, ProShot both are good examples.

    sdc1, do you pay ATT extra for that ability or did you "fix" your phone to allow that?

    Better get a factory unlocked device (does not matter what model), as carriers disable tethering option in devices.

    I'm in the UK and have tethering as part of my plan.
