Disregard - I just received the update 12:15amCST and the Hotspot now works. All is GOOD! I give Verizon and Samsung my thanks. While I was inconvenienced for a while, I do believe I will be a happy customer for many years. The phone ROCKS! Okay, my Hot spot has not been working for about a week and half now on my Charge. I am pretty disappointed and there is no date as of yet when this will be fixed. I am ever more disappointed that Verizon cannot or will not do anything for me. No phone exchange or allow me to drop and switch carriers. While I will stay with Verizon, not because they have me by the you know what, but because they do have the best coverage and I really think this phone rocks except for the Hot spot feature. Is that why it is free, until they work the bugs out? Can any of you savy Droid Vet's out there help a converted and loving it Blackberry user understand this? Thank you.
