To the best of my knowledge, you don't. That's not a thing you're even *supposed* to be able to do; there's basically no legit use for it except for certain types of security testing, and if that was your goal you bought entirely the wrong phone for the purpose. It might be possible - I've never tried - on an interop-unlocked phone, but unless Nokia is including very odd features in their OEM applications you're out of luck.

You could try running your requests through a PC (use a proxy server or set up the PC as a WiFi hotspot) and use the various driver tricks to change the MAC address on the PC, I guess?

You can't...it is saved into the rom of your wireless card of your phone. It is impossible with every device in the world

No, I could not tell you exactly. I want to change the mac address so fake. Previously I was using android and "wifi mac address changer" There was an application named. I currently do not have such an application in Windows phones.

I'm guessing that app required a rooted phone? Not (yet) possible on WP8.
