Hey there, I'm pretty new to getting in depth with droids and I this has caused me to have a problem. I am trying to get WiFi hotspot working on my phone without the plan from verizon. I have my droid 3 rooted, have WiFi tether installed, unlimited data plan, 5.7.906 firmware, and have not got it working correctly.
I have connected my laptop successfully to my phone by WiFi hotspot and had the internet working intermittently.
First scenarioAfter i turn WiFi tether off the 3g service bar on the top right of my phone changes from blue to white and I then have to go about turning airplane mode on or off OR restarting my phone to get 3g service to come back on.
Second scenario Most of the time I turn on WiFi tether, connect my laptop to my Phone, then open my internet browser and I get the message that pops up saying "You do not have wifi hotspot set up, go to verizons page and sign up etc..."
I have gone in and made sure my phone had the entitlement check set to 0 instead of 1 and that check was ok.
Anyone have an idea why I'm running into this problem?
Any other solutions to get wifi tethering working with any other apps/hacks?
