Use Rogers's ROM to flash AT&T devices
Anyone try to do this? Because of seems like the internet sharing in AT&T is different than WW model.

I tried once, but it failed. I was afraid of bricking it, so didn't go any further. It may work, but I was not willing to sacrifice my new Lumia quite yet...

OK~ Have you try the internet sharing with other carrier's SIM card?

Thanks for your kindly reply.

Nokia Lumia 900
HI Gents,
Have a question as i'm quiet new to this:
I have a Nokia Lumia 900 locked by at&t in the US. I purchased it on ebay and live in Australia.

By me flashing this phone, will it unlock it from the at&t network with ROMS provided by the above links in this thread?

Best Regards,
crowvat

No, sorry, I'm still locked to ATT.

I don't believe you can unlock the radio by flashing one of these, but maybe someone else can offer insight?

Again, I have NOT successfully flashed the Rogers ROM to my ATT Lumia, and I'm not even sure it will work. Keep in mind, it may brick your phone like flashing the wrong version of the Focus ROMs did to some Samsung Focuses, or how the HD2 had two different Radio Versions that bricked them if used incorrectly. Those two situations were unrecoverable without sending in to Factory for repair.

Another thing to keep in mind. These are 100% Original ROMs from Nokia. There are no changes or Hacks in these. You only get what your phone was originally shipped with. No need to use these if your phone is working properly. I posted them for anyone who wanted to look inside the ROMs for hacking, or anyone who has a phone in brick state that wants to try to recover.

I have a feeling successfully being able to flash the Rogers ROM over the ATT ROM might actually unlocked the internet sharing... However it's probably best to confirm in the other forum with someone who's unlocked the Rogers L900 on Telus if they were able to actually use it or if it remaining locked to Rogers.. If not, we're wasting our time trying.

I just tried to FORCE flash the Rogers ROM to my ATT Lumia, but I could not get it to work. It is failing due to not being correct hardware. Someone else might have better luck than I did. My guess is the files will need to be modified a little somewhere.

I also just added Images to the first Post that show Nokia Care Suite, and what phones are supported using this tool.

Rogers customer here.

The internet sharing option IS available but any connected devices will not get internet access unless you have a tethering plan. So even if you flash a Rogers ROM to an AT&T phone, it seems the provider still can disable internet sharing on their end.

I wonder if you can't flash it right now because the Rogers version is also a HSPA 42 device while the ATT is only 21. Dont know if this is enough of a difference for it not to work.

That's how the ATT version is. The option exists, but you have to call in to ATT and have it enabled for an extra charge.

I believe for those who want it free, you'll need to wait for registry access... Even then, doesn't ATT eventually find out and back charge?

Makes me wonder. Can a Rogers customer call Rogers and have it enabled for a charge on an ATT phone?

That's a great question however I believe the answer is no. I've unlocked my ATT Titan for use on Telus. Internet sharing is still locked by ATT. Telus cannot enable it for me and ATT can't do anything either because I'm not a customer.

I'm curious though.. I almost feel like a registry edit would be needed to enable Internet Sharing regardless if you have ATT activate it. What actually enables it? ATT clicks a button on their end and it magically enables it? And lets say the enable it, you leave ATT and unlock your same device on another carrier.. Is it still unlocked?
