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?

The Alive versions are not for regular use, they contain the demo "screensavers" and content programs for the display versions you see on display in at&t stores. If this content downloads to your phone automatically which it will given time with the alive versions basically the demo will auto start when the phone isn't actively being used and run the battery into the ground until it is dead as the screen with never shut off.

That's good to know, although, I don't see any difference on my phone. No extra screen savers, programs, wallpapers, etc... I guess in time they will download automatically?

Default Nokia Lumia 900

I have paid cellunlocker some money to unlock my nokia lumia 900, they did say it will take some time untill they work it out.

And I guess if flashing the phone wont unlock it, its just a waiting game until some one breaks the AT&T lock code.

Can any one think of any other way to unlock this phone?

Best Regards,
crowvat

I was just wondering, if I buy a Lumia 900 AT&T, and then when they release the 900 in Europe as well, could I flash the Europe (unlocked) ROM on the AT&T variant? Because it won't accept my SIM card when it's locked, or would it?
Windows Phone proves that you can make an original and innovative OS without copying Apple. Something Google didn't manage to do.

NOKIA Lumia 920 | OS: WP8 Apollo (8.0.9903.10)
NOKIA Lumia 800 | OS: WP7.5 Mango (7.10.8773.98)

HTC HD Mini (sold)

I have a Rogers Lumia 900 unlocked and am using it on Bell. When I try and enable Internet Sharing, I get a message stating that "Internet sharing isn't currently allowed." Really disappointed in that since I was looking forward to keeping that option available since I came from a Touch Pro 2.

But do you have a tethering plan activated with Bell?
