Default Hotspot wireless tethering on HTC inspire 4G

I have been able to use the hostspot function for free, without the need to root my phone. I wonder if anyone else has done it similarly.

Basically i went to Settings/wireless and networks/mobile networks/APNs/.... Here hit menu again, and add new APN. i used the settings provided here.(from an xda forum)

Name: AT&T
APN: wap.cingular
Proxy: leave blank
Port: leave blank
Username:WAP@CINGULARGPRS.COM
Password:CINGULAR1
Server: leave blank
MMSC: http://mmsc.cingular.com
MMS Proxy: wireless.cingular.com
MMS Port: 80
MMS Protocol: WAP 2.0
MCC:310
MNC:410
Authentication Type: leave blank
APN Type: leave blank

Menu - Save, then select New APN (AT&T) You should see a green dot next to it, and it should be labeled under AT&T as wap.cingular. Go back to home screen and check internet connection is active. Once you verified internet is working, power off phone, then power on. Phone should still have active internet connection, if it does, you are done!

This info is from XDA forums. the info is caps sensitive.
Let me know if it works for you too.
good luck.

This worked for me for a few weeks, does not work anymore. i double checked the settings and although they are still the same and still selected it will not work and the hotspot will just turn off and a popup telling me to call 611 to activate it comes up. Oh well it was nice while it lasted although I never really had the opportunity to use it. at least the phone is good enough to use for surfing rather than a laptop. Would like to know if anyone comes up with another work around.

Same here. I'm looking into getting a Wifi only version of the Xoom or Galaxy Tab 10.1 soon and would like to be able to tether it to my Inspire when not around a Wifi hotspot.

So I just updated to gingerbread and now this isn't working for me. I use to use this everyday! It was my only source for internet.

Anyone have an idea of what to do to make this work for gingerbread?

This worked really well for me until the update. Now it does not work at all. When it was working, occasionally I would have to restart phone after the hotspot was on and inactive for more than 10 minutes. It would pop up the 611 message. But a restart would solve that problem. Now it won't work at all. I hate to go to the trouble of rooting but Hotspot is a great feature. I am not paying AT&T extra for a service I already pay for!!!

Well lucky u. i just found out today that i have to pay $355.78!!!! Oh and yeah the set up worked for me too....but at what cost ...$355.78 to be exact. My advice and lesson well learned is "dont mess with you shine new smart phone" because they(AT&T) are watching you. sigh, just a word to the wise.

Att was supposed to send out warning texts/letters about tethering if they thought you were doing that with your phone. Either you didn't get a notice or you didn't take them serious.

I knew a few people that used it and never got billed. But they also don't go crazy with it and just use it occasionally to tether.

Talking Hey all,

Go to Settings
Wireless & networks
Mobile network - disconnect
Turn on the Portable Wifi hotspot
Mobile network- reconnect

Good luck!

trying to use my Nexus 7 on wifi through my inspire hotspot. I also have "unlimited" data plan, but they wont allow me to use this hotspot feature. What a bunch of nonsense.

Is there any other way to get this to work?

thanks!
