    Yesterday the mobile hotspot app was working fine. Today when i tapped to open the app the screen flashed then nothing. I tried restarting the phone and i removed the battery. Any suggestions or ways to reinstall this app.

    I have the same situation and so does a friend of mine. The app flashes for a second like it will open but it immediately closes.

    Are you paying for Mobile Broadband? If not, sounds like VZW may be doing more cracking down.

    Nope. I'm sure it was "trial peroid" thats over with. Too good to be true, it was nice while it lasted.

    I just spoke to VZ tech support. It is a known network issue raised to critical. Should be resolved soon.

    Droid charge hotspot not working

    My experience the same as others. New Droid Charge phone - bought Tuesday. Used hotspot last night (wednesday). This morning hotspot stopped working. Went to Verizon Office. After 1.5 hours of tech troubleshooting, they gave me a new handset. The new handset has the same behavior. The hotspot just flickers when you click the icon. I suspect this is a global software update (bet my right hand on it). So, all we can do is wait. In the meantime I have no internet access. I got rid of the Verizon usb modem I had (like a dummy). Oh well, experience is the best teacher.

    They are probably testing something to block tethering once the trial ends.

    Still an issue today. However if you change your date to any date prior to 6-1 it will work.

    Date Change worked

    Thanks for the date change post. Scrolled my month back to May from June and Hotspot App worked like it's supposed to.
    Looks like Verizon failed to update some software code when it did the June 15th extension.

    I went in to the store and the rep had to call technical. They tried reseting my phone from scratch to see if it would reload It's a Samsung issue on the phone. There should be an update for it when it is ready.
