    not sure why.... you could try downloading sysapp pusher from the windows phone store and on the nokia section scroll down to system and click each one and check they are updated this will make sure that your phone has the latest settings updates...which maybe could update this missing internet sharing option, hopefully someone will have a better answer to solve your problem good luck

    If it's a country variant device, check if you have the proper access point settings. If it's a carrier locked device, check if your carrier allows it.

    i have this same phone with the nokia black update and it is not missing for me....maybe try another network sim and see if the option magically appears if it does then maybe your phone network decided not to support that feature (i am only taking guesses here sorry) good luck

    Insert another sim and then switch on your phone and La there is "Internet sharing", thenafter, insert again your old sim. It worked for me.

    For me also the same problem. I am using lumia 720. I update my mobile to amber. But till the update I had the problem "internet sharing isn't currently available". So I decided to hard reset my mobile and did the same. After my hard reset, I tried to check the internet sharing working condition. But unfortunately it disappeared from my menu. Can anyone give suggestion to overcome this issue?

    Also lost my internet sharing on my lumia 620. After days of trying to get it back I got it! So simple just go to
    Access point
    Click on your network

    Mine was aio but AT&T was active so I just made aio active and I got it back
    You may have to reboot phone after change
