    Yes, I can, after an OS update two or three months ago. However, it may depend on whether your phone carrier service has enabled it. Look in Settings.

  • @paradroid I didn't find out a settings named carrier service . Is it directly under settings menu? Oct 26 '12 at 4:56
  • What I mean by carrier is your phone company. In Settings, I have Internet Sharing, between Bluetooth and email+accounts.

The option was originally disabled by Nokia, although they did recently enable it -- if you haven't done so recently, connect via Zune and install any updates if you have any.

Wi-Fi sharing is in the settings menu, under "Internet Sharing".

For best results, only use with the phone on external power - even if that is the laptop you're providing power from is running on battery.
