Mobile Hotspot automatically turns off
My 9810 with leaked OS 220.127.116.118 is having some issues with Mobile Hotspot. When the leak first came out, it worked fine (at least the first week as i only used it like 3 times on the week of release). I have been trying this week and last week and it works fine for about 2 minutes, then it automatically shuts the mobile hotspot off.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
Things to know:
I am on AT&T.
I do not have a tethering plan.
I have tried restarting the phone (pulling battery).
I have tried changing the auto shut off feature to 1 hour, and to never (same results).
I appreciate any help and suggestions. I would get a tethering plan if i used it more than once every two months.

I have att & tethering plan. I have the earlier 7.1 and hot spot stays on. I suspect your problem is that you need to have the tethering plan.
But it is good to see that someone is using this latest, leak on att._________________________

I haven't tried it since and recently I went to try it and it connects and works fine for about 2 minutes before it turns itself off. I can always turn it back on, but keeps turning off after 2 minutes.
Annyway, thanks for writing.

Re: Mobile Hotspot automatically turns off
Guys, here is the solution.
I was having the same problem. The reason mobile hotspot was turning itself off was the WiFi Manager (or other similar app that controls your phone's WiFi connection automatically).
So when you need to use mobile hotspot just disable WiFi manager or similar app.
