Hey, people!

I have an unlocked SGH-i747 I got last week. Today I tried to enable USB tethering, but I got the message "Mobile data is not available or invalid SIM"; same thing happens if I try to enable Portable Wi-Fi hotspot.

żAny solution to this? I know I will probably have to root the phone, that's no problem.

Thanks!

Bone stock? You got to pay for it stock. Flash a custom ROM, it should work.

Yeah; I didn't know AT&T does that for tethering. I just flashed a modified stock ROM with the tether fix and that worked out pretty well.

Thanks!

Thanks...

I have AT&T device, rooted and unlocked on another provider; also build-in tether does not work.
But it is working over 3rd party free (donate) application "Wifi tether" for rooted devices.

EDIT:
I double checked now, and it does not transmit any data over "Wifi tether" application. Sorry, it does not work....

Okay, so the question I have for OP is -- do you have network data turned on?

"Mobile data is not available" << means that data is turned off. Turn data on, then try to enable hot spot, then that should work.
