    Hi All,

    New 520 and wondering about tethering. I have an unlimited data plan and currently use a Moto X tethered for the PCs in the home.

    I wanted to get a windows phone to see what it was like and the 520 was the best entry deal for a new phone. I have done some searching on tethering and can't find anything conclusive.

    Is it possible?
    How?
    Is it part of win8-phone?
    Thoughts and suggestions?

    Thanks

    You're carrier would have to allow it, but under settings, there's an "Internet sharing" option that will allow your device to connect to it via WiFi. I just had this on my 520 and it worked great. If you're carrier doesn't allow you, it will say so when you try to turn it on.

    Thanks, yes they do. I am currently using Tethering with a Moto X and it is spotty at best. In fact, if Tethering is not allowed, the X at least, will not show the option to create the Tethered AP as I believe it is a SIM controlled issue.

    I am not sure if the spotty performance is the cell network or the phone. I will give the 520 a try. Thanks for pointing me at where to look.
