    What method using IT have you done exactly?

    Normally it's the below....
    HKLM\System\ControlSet001\Services\ICSSVC\Settings

    EntitlementRequired = 0

    Wonder if the new plan has a toggle or your phone is not seen as a capable phone...? Usually when we got that problem I had to call att and update them with the sim card ID and the imei of the phone on the phone number.

    DedicatedConnections = blank (literally nothing)

    The new ATT unlimited plan is not supposed to enable tethering - but I was hoping there would be a work around

    Did it work prior? I'd so then ATT has locked it out on their end it seems.

    I upgraded to this plan about a week ago and it was working fine and it just stopped this morning. Was hoping they wouldnt block it for windows 10 phones - so not sure if they caught on or what happened

    Not sure yet either. Was the reg setting there before and if it was not changed before you upgraded and worked then now a week later into it blocked AT&T is doing something to manage it from their end it seems. I bet there is still a work around though.

    The new AT&T unlimited plan actually does allow tethering, up to 10GB. Discussing workarounds for tethering when it isn't allowed is prohibited here, but it's a non issue in this case since tethering is allowed.

    That said, if your phone is factory unlocked (I'm assuming it is), tethering should work either way. Do you have another phone available you can put your SIM card in to test tethering? Have you used 10GB via tethering?

    I was pretty sure of that too. This happens on iphones too that I have owned. When I switch the sim card in to one or out from one to a Windows phone or vice versa. That is why I think the AT&T end may have something to do with it. Not necessarily meaning it is blocked and not allowed on the unlimited plan, but just provisioning for some reason. Maybe when the account upgraded, all the devices refreshed. Could just try giving AT&T the imei again for that phone line. Might work after that.

    So apparently i was on the unlimited plan which was started in january which did have 10 gb but then it turned off after the fact. But they upgraded me to this new Feb unlimited ATT plan which has 10gb then it gets throttled - and its 40$ .... so apparently im good to go now. Its working again
