    Sorry about that. Looks like you have to hack it to get what you want. Have you seen this video?

    Is there any chance of ruining the phone ? Should I get it done by somebody else ?

    There's always a chance of messing up the phone when you start modifying the factory settings. The more that I look at that video, the less I like the instructions. It looks like he's downloading software from someplace which I wouldn't do. I did some searches on a Windows Phone forum and the instructions that I've seen look similar but a little different. Try this thread - Internet Sharing + MMS now working on AT&T 920 w/ USA T-Mobile SIM.
