    Default HTC ONE M8 Problem with mobile hotspot

    Hi I'm from Argentina!, I just bought an HTC one m8 unlocked from at&t (by mistake) and because of that, I can't activate mobile hotspot witch is necessary to get my daily work done. Is there any solution for this without rooting my phone? And by the way it hasn't update yet is this normal?
    Many Thanks! Hope someone could help me!

    Yes it is AT&T branded, unlocked and I'm using an Argentinian network (Claro).

    Do you have a mobile hotspot plan that enables it?
    Also, you should get updates, however I'm not sure if you need an activated att Sim to get the updates.

    Yes i have that feature enabled (in Argentina we don't have restrictions with mobile hotspot in any plan). Moreover, in all my previous phones I've been using it without problems... I don't want to change my phone again!! I really appreciate your dedication in this issue. Thank you very much!!

    So I did some searching and reading around. What I came up with is any att branded phone that is unlocked, doesn't have the proper software/programming to use mobile hotspots on another carrier.

    One guy said he got past this issue by using this app https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...apps.wifi.free
    However I doubt this will work. I couldn't even get the app to turn my hotspot on. But give it a try.

    So it seems like rooting would be the only way to truly get around this is. Sorry about it, but those seem to be the restrictions.

    I've rooted all my android devices except for the m8 and moto x. There really isn't any downside to rooting. It can be a hassle to unroot and get it back to stock if you ever needed to, but it really does open up so many more doors if you don't mind a little hackery. You can remove all of the bloatware, get the hotspot, change a lot more system settings to your personal preference. There's just so much you can do if you are into that kind of stuff.

    After searching so many days. i found the solution accidentally

    My Simple Answer is "Disable LAN" on Desktop

    How You Do That?

    open network and sharing center >> change adapter settings >> Local Area Connection (Right Click to Disable)

    then connect your desktop with your htc hotspot

    See the magic.

    Like my answer if it work for you as well
