    Well I bought a Samsung Focus Flash and unlocked it
    I am not using a At&t sim
    3/4G works fine
    But when i try to tether i get a message saying "Call 611 or go to att.com/mywireless"
    I dont have a At&t account and why wont they let me tether im not even on their network??

    I am fairly sure you will have to call ATT and pay a little extra for the ability to tether. I think it is $10 or $20 extra a month and they will let you DL 1gb or 2gb extra per month as well.

    The phone is probably locked to only allow at&t tethering. You'll probably need an unbranded unlocked phone not a carrier branded phone to get tethering. Or flash an unbranded rom.

    This is normal with a carrier-branded phone. It happens on Android as well, but Android has lots of tethering apps freely available in the Play Store that allow tethering anyway.

    Hi. I read this post and it worked for me. You just have to download the app called: Access Point. Install it and then erase all the info from settings-cellular.

    Here is the app:
    access point | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United States)

    And here is the original post:
    Unlocked Lumia 920 (Rogers), Internet Tethering/MMS fully functional - RedFlagDeals.com Forums

    I'm using an unlocked Lumia 920, originally from ATT, but now working on an Argentinian SIM.

    Let me know if it works for you
