I noticed after the OS update to the Amazon Fire phone that my APN settings are still present, but I can't get it to allow me to do the Wi-Fi HotSpot anymore. I can surf the internet on the phone itself and all is well there, MMS, etc. When I go into Settings and setup the hotspot like before, it is acknowledging that it is on and sees the laptop connecting to it over Wi-Fi, but the laptop can't get anywhere on it.
As a test, I pulled out my daughter's SII on the Ting/Sprint network and it is able to surf just fine from the laptop.
Anyone been able to do the Wi-Fi hotspot option after the recent Amazon OS update on the phone? The APN settings look great. And everything but the Wi-Fi hotspot appears to be working fine.
I also checked my settings inside the Ting.com account panel.. toggled them on/off, waited a while, restarted the phone... No deal.. It is like it is there, sees the hotspot, but it won't actually allow the devices connected to it to surf using the Ting/TM cellular connection.
