    I have a brand new Samsung Focus, v1.3, 7390. No matter what I did, the trick floating around didn't work. But my wife's Focus, which was on Mango RTM, got a notice to update on day 1. So I got the thinking, maybe MS has prioritzed those on RTM and Beta? So I decided to bring my phone to beta using XDA method. So if you're not willing to wait and don't care about loss of data, here is what I did:

    Install Mango Beta: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1215501

    *Install Zune beta
    *Follow steps 1-12
    *Once your phone reaches step 12 it will be on 7403
    *From 7403, Zune will skip 7712 and update you directly to Final build (7720)
    *It will then install the Cleanup update we saw before Mango release
    *Finally it will install Mango (mine stated Samsung update for Windows Phone)

    Cheers :)

    Tethering is supported by Mango, but it is up to carriers to enable them. I don't see that option, so I'm assuming AT&T did not enable it.

    I don't have tethering either, on O2 in the UK.

    I skimmed over a hack to activate tethering on focus. But it required you developer unlock your phone.
