Unable to Tether Unlocked Nokia Lumia 920

I purchased a Unlocked Nokia Lumia 920... Everything works great on it with the exception of I am unable to share my internet access with my own computer. Everytime I try, I get this message.. "Connection not shared.. To enable tethering on the device, go to http://att.com/mywireless or dial 611

 

I am unable to contact them regarding this problem since I do not use AT&T service. I am on Net10.... How can I fix this?

ATT phones are programmed for its network and that includes the hotspot.  It will not work on a non-ATT network.

If that is the case, then I have another question. I also have a Unlocked Amazon Fire Phone that is a AT&T phone that is also on a non At&T network. I am able to to tether this phone perfectly with no problems.....How can my Fire Phone work but the Lumia not since they are both AT&T phones and have the same programming?
