    So, I just got an unlocked (AT&T) Ativ S Neo and after setting it up I tried to enable internet sharing but it didn't seem to work. I get an error when I try to enable it "Internet Sharing isn't currently available".

    I also have a Samsung Focus (which is also an unlocked AT&T variant) and internet sharing works fine on it using the same SIM card.

    I'm on WP 8.0 using a T-Mobile SIM card.

    Any ideas? I used the forum search and got nothing!

    Forgot to add, cellular data is working fine and I'm getting 4G speed.

    Are you looking to tether you mean and share its internet connection?

    Yes, I'm trying to use my Ativ as a hotspot.

    I use tether x from the app store works good if you follow directions but limited amount of data unless you buy the pro version

    That's disappointing, I have a L521 and still can't use that to tether either, yet my WP 7.8 devices have no problem tethering.

    I've come across Tether-X when I was trying to fix Internet Sharing in my L521 but never had time to mess with Tether-X.

    Yeah sorry I dont have a better answer....the issue I have with mine is because the previous owner didn't unlock tethering on the phone before the took it off contract and at&t wont enable it for my plan so I must use tether x.....it sets up an ad-hoc network which you should be able to connect your other computers to your laptop or PC that has the adhoc set up

    Like I said tho the pro version allows unlimited data but free does not

    Thanks anyway.

    I'm loving almost everything about the Ativ but the issue with tethering is a huge let down. I might return it because of this.

    Idk if this was obvious or not, but if its at&t and you have a contract with them they will.enable it but you have to have an account and their SIM at minimum....you might be able to borrow a friends SIM but still need an account with them. Good luck!
