The Mobile Hotspot application has stopped working on the Samsung Droid Charge starting on 6/2/11 Posted 06/03/2011 Issue Description Customers have reported that the Mobile Hotspot application has stopped working on the Samsung Droid Charge starting on 6/2/11. The device was launched with the Mobile Hotspot (and Mobile Broadband Connect service) offered at no additional charge to customers for a limited time. Due to a software bug on the Charge, the device has now disabled the Mobile Hotspot. Customers who now try to launch the application will see the screen momentarily change to a black screen, and then return to the menu with the same Mobile Hotspot icon.
Resolution Plan Samsung has found the root cause and has submitted a software upgrade (MR2) to Verizon Wireless. We are currently testing this software and expect to approve it and release to customers as an "over-the-air" upgrade by June 9 end of week. Once the upgrade is installed on the customer's device, the Mobile Hotspot will resume working at no additional charge until the promotional period expires. Work Around There currently is no known workaround for this issue. Certified Like New Replacement (CLNR) Information This issue does not warrant any type of CLNR replacement for customers experiencing these issues.
