enable portable wifi hotspot.

I have an older AT&T branded phone Pantech Crossover P8000, that is unlocked and being used overseas with a local carrier.  It works wonderfully and has data capability but .......

 

unfortunately I can't enable wifi hotspot to tether, as I get

 

"To enable mobile hotspot on this device, go to att.com/mywireless or dial 611"

 

I am not a AT&T wireless customer but had my phone unlocked by AT&T (They sent me the code to unlock sim network to use overseas).

 

How can I have the hotspot functionality enabled to use the phone as it was intended (since I am not using AT&T this should be possible).

 

Thanks in advance for any guidance.

 

Jeremy.

I believe that you need to get an updated Caer Settings file for your carrier, now that your phone is unlocked.  The hotspot settings are controlled by that settings file.

I have seen it repeated that ATT hotspot is a carrier feature and will never work with another carrier.  

If it were possible to use it, your current carrier would have to help you as it is out of ATT's control.
