Hi all,

Has anyone here ever picked up an unbranded WP8 internationally and then used on ATT? Is tethering locked down? Are you able to use data sense on ATT?

Thanks!

Unbranded means there is no carrier to interfere with your updates and usage. Therefore, every feature added in GDR2 should work on these devices, unless MS pulls a stupid trick.

Thanks--but can you use internet sharing on ATT or does it say locked down?
Thanks!

AT&T Internet Sharing is pretty much locked down since they Control It, it will work for a few minutes, then will get shutdown by AT&T, you will get a message telling you to pay for It.

Thanks! Super helpful! My concern is really about whether buying the ATT phone is going to mess me up if i move back to Canada and use on Rogers, etc. Obviously, would prefer buying the ATT phone now from MSFT as cheaper, comes with the camera grip, etc...but just concerned about whether them locking this phone down will be problematic down the line.

Also, if I travel and am roaming from ATT but on a different provider, will this still be an issue.

I want this phone so bad--but will likely hold off for now :(

best,
