Arrow [Q] Nokia Lumia 521 internet sharing problem

I recently bought a cheap Tmobile US Nokia Lumia 521 for $50 on a retail store and I activate a prepaid number from tmobile and i used tethering without a problem; now i switched to my original sim card from Simple Mobile and I tried to use the internet sharing app from the nokia and didnt work with simple mobile and have the correct apn every time I tried to activate the built in app I receive this error: Conection Not shared internet sharing isnt currently available but i switch again to my tmobile sim and works fine. Any fix for this problem? Any app for tethering? Btw i have a tmobile usa HTC HD2 with andrid and works fine the tethering with the jelly bean built in app

Default Wifi Sharing

I also have this problem I was running a HTC fully unlocked Radar was able to share my internet fine using my Simple Mobile sim after the phone died from water damage I picked up the same Lumia 521 and experienced this issue have you tried unlocking it ? Or have you had any luck I believe it is because it is Locked this is only a theory but I have not got around to unlocking the phone

Simple Mobile has to enable tethering on your account for it to work. Had the same issue going from T-Mo to Family Mobile. Now I'm on MetroPCS, same network, and I had them enable tethering, and it works just fine. An option for you is the Tether-X app. I used it quite a bit before.
