Tethering Detected Tethering and Portable WiFi Hotspot service requires a subscription plan. Call 611 to subscribe. This message pops up and afterwards, I lose my bluetooth connection in my car everytime. I then have to delete the phone off my car's bluetooth and then reconnect it. It's annoying to have to do this every few days. It started doing this and the screen freezing black after I did a software update. A factory reset fixed the screen issue, but this is still happening. I certainly would never voluntarily expose myself to wifi bc of the adverse health consequences I get so I'd never tether. is therea way to disable something so it quits thinking I'm to tether something, which I am not.
