Re: WiFi Hotspot
But anyway i use the wifi hot spot my laptop
and it don't work good & sometimes not at all it says browser can't open webpage.
What happens is you click on the icon on the phone activeting the hotspot, click on your wifi on your computer, everything says it is connected, the phone the laptop, all have good signal and connected.
But the web browser will either not open the webpage at all saying you don't have a connection to the internet, or go slower than dial up, sometimes it takes a half hour to get it going, between turning the phone on and off and the computer.
Since these phones have sim cards I yanked it out and put it in my old phone, (a mytouch 4g) and it worked great, faster than my home network, I dont know if it is a phone problem or a software problem.
I called t-mobile and they said it usually is some settings on their side and they put in a trouble ticket, but I don't think so, cause the phone works, they called me back and I told them I noteced no differance it did not work any better.
Hopefully it is a software issue that HTC can realize and fix if enough people complain cause the phones specs should be faster and better than a mytouch.
Anyway if anyone uses the wifi hot spot on their phone or device I would like to know what phone or device you are using and hear your expeance cause I know a lot of people have laptops
