    Default Tethering not working !!Unlocked At&t phone but using it w/ T-Mobile

    I have an unlocked At&t Note 2 but I am currently using it with T-mobile, when I try to turn on the mobile hotspot it immediately turns off and tells me "Mobile Data is not available or Invalid SIM". My phone is currently running 4.3 Jelly Bean and I do not want to root it.

    Do you have tethering/hotspot enabled on your plan? If not, maybe try something like Foxfi.

    I am a developer for HTC devices. If you ever need help with one, let me know.

    Yes I have tethering/hotspot in my plan... when i had my phone running 4.1.2 i had the same message but FoxFi fixed the problem, but since i updated to 4.3 not even FoxFi has worked.

    I may be wrong but didn't 4.3 break that ability ? Idk if there is a workaround. You can check on xda.
