Have had droids since they came out and pretty much done the samething to all of them, rooted and changed the entitlement to get around Verizons monthly charge. This latest Droid Razr Maxx HD with the latest JB on it does pretty much the samething that the rest of them do, the hotspot is extremly slow at times. I also have PDAnet installed and have used it for the past 4 years. I prefere PDAnet just due to the fact its about 10 times as fast as using the phones Hotspot. At times using the phones hotspot it might take upto 4 to 8 seconds to bring up a web page vers using PDAnet 1 to 2 seconds if not instant. And I've narrowed it down by using the hot spot on the same web pages and than plugging in PDAnet and its night and day on speed. Though some times the hotspt works great, but not consistanly. Is this the nature of the beast, do I need to turn off certian apps to get the hotspot to work correctly. Any thoughts ?
