It should work fine if internet on your cell phone works fine.

It could be that they actively block tethering by DPI...
That would suck pretty hard, lol.

Do you have a firewall on the phone, is tethering supported or blocked by your provider ?

I had the same problem on Orange Pay Monthly.

The instructions shown in the link in the previous post worked for me.  Only difference was that it was Orange who gave me the instructions!
