Wondering if anyone else has this problem and if they can offer a solution ...
I have a Lumia 920 running on the Vodafone NZ network, with a data plan.  I was happily using Internet Sharing a couple of months ago without issues.  Today I went to use it and I am no longer able to turn Internet Sharing on - I get the message:
"Connection not shared.  There's no mobile data connection to share at the moment.  Check your mobile settings and signal, and try again".
My dataplan is active and working.  I have not changed plans or anything else recently - I can only think that the Amber update I got a couple of months back may have affected this - I haven't used the internet sharing since the update.
I tried one of the internet suggestions of creating a dummy APN via Access Point and soft re-starting etc to re-connect the data, but this did not change anything.
My phone was purchased unlocked from Australia:
Phone Details:
Manufacturer Name: RM-821_apac_australia_new_zealand_304
Mobile Operator: 000-AU
OS version: 8.0.10328.78
Carrier: Australia
Firmware version: 3049.0000.1330.0006
Access Point: Version

Apologies if this is in the wrong forum.  And Thanks in advance ....

There is an update to the Access Point application which will fix this

Once installed, go to Settings > Access Point, select your network provider and it will work again.
