Yes, if you turn off either Mobile Network or Data Service and then try to turn on Internet Tethering, it will require you to turn on both.
Ok.... I can tell you this: I have an app called "Data Usage Counter" that counts you mobile data and your WiFi data in real time. And just to check on what you are saying, I connected the Z10 to my laptop and turn on the Internet Tethering. The flow of data was going thru the WiFi and NOT thru the mobile network, just as I thought. However, if you still have doubts, call your network providewr technical support and ask them too.

I probably don't need the app as I am actually in IT field. I know how to tell the difference by checking the IP ranges, plus I am able to check my mobile data usage by login to my network provider's website, it clearly shows I used their data. Trust me on this, I wouldn't have come here to post if it had worked for me.
I guess I will just give up, or check someone else's Z10 see how theirs work in this case, if I'm lucky enough to find someone who uses Z10
Thanks for your answering!
