1. Are you ready for the Galaxy S20? Here is everything we know so far!

Can you guys still browse (on the phone) with the wifi hotspot on?

    Can you tell me (viz. those of you with a working hotspot!), can you still use your browser when the hotspot is active. Just turning the hotspot on on my desire cuts the (mobile data) internet connection with the browser, and anything else!

    In fact even after turning off the hotspot I have to toggle mobile data on/off & toggle APN's to get mob. data back.

    Also which Orange APN's/usernames/passwords do you have success with & which not?

    I have tried all the posted solutions & even HTC technical!

    Any bright ideas anyone?

    I think my last resort is to de-brand (unlocked Tmob used on Orange sim) I reckon!

    I have to get this working for use abroad. It's driving me nuts!

    Yes I can still browse the web on the phone with the hotspot on and in use. I'm on T Mobile though.

    If your running 2.2 on Orange your hotspot or tether wont work, unless there's an update I don't know about. There are threads aplenty here on all the complaints.
