    So I am back to the X after returning the Nexus. The one issue I could never get resolved is the mobile hotspot/tethering doesnt work. I had the phone swapped, factory resets and even Gingerbread doesnt fix it. It drops pings and then I lose internet. Just curious that nobody else has this issue, any ideas?

    Have you signed up for the Tethering plan through Verizon?

    Not rooted but I think I fixed it:

    1. Go to Settings
    2. Go to Wireless & network settings
    3. Go to WiFi settings
    4. Select the Menu button ( bottom of the phone to the left of the home button)
    5. Select Advanced settings
    6. Select WiFi sleep policy
    7. Select Never

    Then I changed the channel to 7. Seems to be working. I never even knew that setting was there.
