    I have called Verizon and Samsung and both have indicated there will be an OTA push coming to fix the mobile hotspot feature. We'll see if it is good or bad or how it affects future root possibilities.

    My phone updated to ED2 when I got it a couple of days ago. The new OTA push is targeted directly at the wifi hotspot problem.

    Do we have to wait for a text or something? When I go to system update, it says phone is up to date. At work so I can't get to the pdf to read instructions.

    I don't have the notification yet either. I think they push these things out in batches so some of us have to wait.

    Would it be that hard to include a color change for the drab brown color they used on this phone !

    For some reason I feel like I'm using a 10 year old phone every time I have to witness that monstrosity !:eek:

    They don't normally send these updates out to everyone at once. Even 4G has it's bandwidth limits. The updates will roll out different places at different times.

    That being said, it has been over a year since I used a stock phone, and I just got my Charge at the store yesterday. How does one verify if the patch has been applied already?? [​IMG]

    EDIT:
    Found the answer. It will look like

    Build number
    SCH-I510.EE4

    Still haven't received it. I'm a bit irritated because I need to use the hotspot feature right NOW. I guess I'll get the update on the 15th when the free eval is up.

    I'm not sure if they are pushing out the update by geographic location or not. The Tier 2 tech support rep I talked to said they were sending the update out gradually. I think she quoted about 1000 people per day so it doesn't "clog the network."

    Anyway, I'm in the Dallas-Fort Worth area and no OTA yet. What sucks is she says that everyone should have the mobile hot spot fix within the next 5 days...just in time for when the promotion is over. :(

    Hit menu/settings/about phone... Scroll to the bottom and see if the last three digits are EE4.

    If EE4, you are up to date.

    After all the brown we used when I was a corpsman of marines serving in Iraq I don't really mind to colors.
