    Thanks to Sonus for PM'ing me the details, enabling tethering with the RM-937 (and possibly RM-940) is a piece of cake, at least on straight talk but it may work for AT&T as well. Here's the original thread: xda-developers - View Single Post - Lumia 920 Amber Update via Rogers Dev ROM

    I did things a bit differently in this order:

    1. Download Spanish (Spain) keyboard and postpone installation
    2. Switch region to Spain
    3. Attempt to enable internet sharing
    4. After getting 611 error, install Spanish keyboard and reboot
    5. Upon reboot, switch region back to United States
    6. Now turn on internet sharing and it will work

    Yes but for how long? And will the evil empire slap you with "tethering fees" for using the bandwidth you have already paid for?

    Hi All - I have an unlocked 1520 with a T-Mobile SIM. I have tried the above steps just to see if this will enable internet sharing but NO luck... I thought I saw another thread here with someone with the same issue but I cannot seem to find it....I keep getting an error "Connection not shared....Internet sharing isnt currently available" I also got an error downloading the Dictionary for the Spanish Keyboard.

    Any help?

    Thanks in advance...

    Internet sharing issues and Nokia 's Access point issue
    I purchased NOKIA Lumia 1520 and using it with Bell mobility (Canada)
    When I first downloaded the Access point it worked and as soon as I updated the SETTING (network +) it stopped working and that happens when new keyboard or any other sitting related apps is updated and there is no way to un install the access point in order to install it again to fix the issue, which it does fix the internet sharing issues and I have done it by hard resetting THE PHONE WHICH IS A BIG HEADACHE

    Now to all those have internet tethering issue please follow these instructions to fix the issue Instructions :
    1- Take out your sim card and turn the phone off
    2 - put a new sim. Card from a different phone services provider.
    3- turn the phone on and go the phone setting and open the Access Point, as soon as you open it you see the new sim card is active.
    4- Restart your phone and take out the sim card and turn the phone off
    And remove the sim card and Now put your sim card and turn on your phone and gain go to the Setting and open the Access Point then you will see your sim card is active.
    5- Restart your phone and enjoy your Internet tethering.
    REMEMBER!!!!!!
    If The next SETTING Update ruins it then you can follow the instructions again and it will fix it again .

    Can you tell me how to delete the Spain keyboard and start over in redownloading it? I'm thinking I may need to reset the phone again to get it to redownload the keyboard for Spain.

    Press and hold the keyboard you want to delete.

    it deletes it from the page not from the system. Once you delete and restart your phone look for it again and you won't have to wait for it to download again.

    Mine it was not working. And suddenly from Saturday it works. Not sure what I have done right. Only the last thing I remember, I had installed English UK keyboard on Friday. And on Saturday some customers had a network problem include myself. Not able to make or receive calls. When the problem solved, I test internet sharing and it works. So not sure what solved my problem.

    So it seems T-mobile has stepped up their tethering tracking, before I could just set my browser's user agent to Googlebot and tether forever, now it has stopped me from tethering after using my 2.5 gb allotment. Does anyone have any workaround for this, I would really appreciate it as my phone connection is my only source of reasonably fast internet. Thanks

    I'm able to enable internet sharing with the Spanish keyboard hack. However, when I try to connect to the hotspot, it directs me to a Tmobile log-in. Anybody else has that problem?

    The keyboard trick worked for me on WP8 with my 1520 and ATT tethering plan and worked through the update to 8.1 but doesn't work anymore now that I've done a hard reset, will have to find a "foreign" nano sim
