    This feature ever going to be fixed? its been broken for like 6 builds now.

    All i get is:

    "Connection not shared
    there's no cellular data connection to share right now. Check your cellular setting and signal, and try again."

    I have seen it work in short bursts, does yours connect and then drop or simply never connect? I thought there was a correlation between it remaining bridged until the screen times out but not absolutely sure that's the case.

    This also happens to my L1020. The internet sharing is working until the screen locks.

    Just updated to the latest insider release and did a factory reset, still wont work... Anyone else have this problem with their Lumia 920? I use my hotspot a lot because i have unlimited data, this is very annoying.

    I had to manually set up an APN for my data to work so i am not using the "Default" APN, does this have an effect on mobile hotspots?

    I have not had any issues with the mobile hotspot since build 10572 at least. Worked for me on each release since then. I've never had trouble with it cutting out on the lockscreen either.

    Seems with several people reporting the issue for the 920, it could either be a hardware specific incompatibility with the 920 or "connection not shared" could be specific to the settings for your data and your carrier, or a combination of both.

    Wish I could be of more help.

    I had an issue at one time with AT&T, and they had to "provision" my SIM card for the hotspot. Seems it had not been set up right on their end.

    Finally fixed it by downloading the app in this thread: "Fix For Lumia 920 Internet Sharing"

    Must be something to do with the APN but my data was working fine...
