    I noticed verizon update requires you to install a firmware update. If I install the firmware update, will it disable the hotspot feature for the ThunderBolt?

    No need to post across multiple forums.

    Yes if you upgrade to the latest firmware, it will make the mobile hotspot a paid service. You can deny the updates but there have been reports of phones eventually doing the update without any user interaction, so it might eventually be forced upon you.

    I posted on more than one forum just in case I didn't get a response. My sincere apologies if I broke any of the forum rules.
    Thanks for the response. I think you may become a prime suspect for an over the air update if you use too much data within a month.

    I use an average of 2.2 gb per month. I've heard anything anything above 5 gigs can make you a prime suspect for heavy use. So I'm hoping I slip under the radar.

    Sucks that I already ran the update for My Verizon, so I can't use it anymore without running the firmware.
