My Verizon Droid Razr is having some Hotspot and tethering problems when connected to my Dell W7 laptop. To keep this as brief and clear as possible, tethering takes many minutes to connect to the internet. I'm in a 3g area which from time to time can go to National Access, but, the phone's browser never has a problem. The tethering slows down my Control Panel to a crawl, and has been known to lock up my computer to the point of having to power it down. The Hotspot is a little better, but occasionally when turning it off on the phone, it doesn't want to turn off. It will then present me with a "not responding" screen, and the I have to do a Force shutdown. After that, the phone may reboot itself, and then it does the oddest thing. It will start ringing. And keep on ringing, and never stop ringing. I then turn it off for a few minutes and it's ok.
