Why did you buy an AT&T branded phone for use in another country?

 

Tethering is problimatic - there are hundreds of reports of tethering being locked to AT&T service on AT&T branded WIndows Phones, with some odd workarounds that I have found when searching for an answer.

 

This post and this thread seems to summarize the various options:

Good luck.
