    Can someone let me know how mobile hotspot is working on this device. I finally got it going steady on my Rezound and would hate to upgraded only to have a setback on another device.

    Geoff5093 just posted on another thread that foxfi did not work with the DNA. If that was the app you were wondering about.

    No I was inquiring about the regular hotspot that comes on the device if it was working

    If you have tethering with your plan, I see no reason why it won't work.

    I had the thunderbolt and it didn't work on it and got the rezound and it wasn't working on it until we got the ics update.

    App included from Verizon

    My stock DNA came with an app called Mobile Hotspot from Verizon, and a matching home screen widget. It looks like it should be a supported feature out of the box.

    I had a little trouble with it on my first try though, not sure why. Will try again later.

    The hotspot is an additional monthly charge.

    Mobile Hotspot is free if you have the Share Everything Plan on Verizon.

    I would like to know if it's working. Can the phone hold a steady signal and how does the battery perform while it's on

    Mobile hotspot is shaky on the device. When I turn it on it causes my data to drop and go in and out. Coming from a Rezound that had similar issues until the ics update I don't want to go through this again

    Yep, I was never able to get wifi tethering to work. The wifi connection between my laptop and the DNA seems to be fine. But I still can't access the internet from my computer when using wifi tethering.

    However, Bluetooth tethering works just fine, also through the built-in settings. I get a reliable connection that works just fine, and it's pretty fast. So I just skip the wifi tethering and use bluetooth instead. Another advantage with the bluetooth option is I don't have to explicitly turn on the mobile hotspot first, and I don't have to disable wifi on the phone.
