    Hey guys, I have a question I have a 1520 unlocked (the international one) on T-Mobile and whenever I try to activate the internet sharing feature it tells me I need to upgrade my plan because tethering is not included (which has now been included in all their plans for months). Before 8.1 I had no trouble using that function but now I can't even activate it. Has anyone had the same problem? any solutions?

    Thanks

    Access point is the culprit. Two options at the moment, either hard reset and don't install access point or refer to the 920 thread that shows how to enable internet sharing on an att Lumia 1020 or 920...something of that sort

    Dang, reset my phone and access point is there right when it turns on. Can't get tethering to work

    that's really a weird bug cause it worked fine on WP8 ...

    Yeah, I think that the only potential solution is using something like Tether X just to be able to have browsing, but from what I've seen it's a pretty complex setup process. I wish there was an easy workaround, but unfortunately it doesn't seem like that's going to happen.
