    Hi all - since I upgraded my Q10 to, I've noticed that I can't use it as a hotspot any more - it keeps timing out when attempting to connect. Has anyone else had this problem? I'm assuming it's a firmware glitch.

    This update was intended for government security, maybe it's left out because of security reasons. That's my first guess.

    Thanks for pointing this out. This is an inconvenience.

    Found it. This was something stupid. The APN setting (I'm with Telstra) was "telstra.wap" for both the mobile network setting and the hotspot setting. The phone itself was connecting without a problem, the hotspot was failing. I changed both to "telstra.internet" and presto.

    Why the phone was happy with either string and the hotspot feature wasn't, I have no idea. Just to test, I changed the mobile network setting back to .wap and the phone still connected, so it's only a case of making sure the hotspot APN setting was set to ".internet".

    I'm not sure, but I could have sworn both settings were .wap before the upgrade, and everything worked. Anyway.
