Switching my iPhone data plan to a LTE plan fixed Internet sharing for me, but I agree Rogers really needs to solve this.
I have the same problem. Last week i was told by tech support it may be related to the data fix being pushed down. Since then, news reports indicate that this is not related to the data fix issue.
Tonight, i spoke to someone in Tech support who has escallated this to tier 2 support for resolution.
I am on a 3G 6GB dataplan. I suspect this has to do with the 3G network not being configured the same as the LTE network. If you have this issue, please report it to tech support so it so this issue can get some attention and it can be resolved for us 3G network users.
Have tech support refer to this thread.
I will post back when i hear a reponse from tech support. it would be great if there was some official word from rogers on this. Please "like" this post/thread.
.. but the solution is simple .. just convert ur plan to LTE .. it should work after that ..
I don't believe they will always just let you "convert" your plan to LTE. If you have to change your plan to LTE then you will likely end up with a lower data cap and/or a more expensive plan. Considering how few cities have LTE setup at the moment, it doesn't make sense to pay more (or get less data) for a feature (LTE) than we can't use when Internet Sharing shouldn't be restriced to it.
Its now working on the 3G network.
Last night i escallated the issue to 2nd level tech support.
Today they called me back saying that they have identifeid and fixed the issue.
I have tested the fix and it now works on a regular 3G dataplan.
This has NOTHING to do with the Noika data fix that was due to be released last monday. This is a separate issue that is now resolved by Rogers.
We are rolling out new Lumia's to other members in my office and wanted to make sure that this is fixed not just for my phone but system wide. He confirmed this has been addressed for all 3G dataplan users. If it does not pick up, you have to call first level tech support to have them repush settings to your phone.
Thank you Rogers! I can now shelve my iPhone 4S
Did they tell you what they did to make it work for you? I just rebooted my phone and it still isn't working for me.
as per my post, you have to call tech support (first level) and just have them repush settings to your phone. then reboot your phone.
I just contact technician this morning,new patch for data issue coming out on Apr 23th probably will fix this tethering issue but no guarantee. Looks like whether LTE data plan or not is not the root cause of this issue,I have LTE plan and LTE sim card and LUMIA 900,still have this issue eventhough I got LTE signal successful. Connection is ok,but no webpage can be open. I dout this is also related to data issue.
