    How do I find this? A while back, I tried to set up my phone as a hotspot but found out that I didn't have the right data plan. Well, now I do. I think I named the network and it actually shows up on my laptop, but it's secure and I need the network key. When I click on Portable Hotspot Settings, I get a screen that says "Settings has stopped unexpectedly. Would you like to tell HTC?" If I say No, I'm brought back to my the phone settings page. I'd rather not do the "Tell HTC" thing...that shouldn't really help things.

    Do I need to go to the AT&T store?

    Wi-Fi Hotspot>Shows the HotSpot password.

    On a similar note: If you would have either changed the file in the system or flashed a custom ROM, you'd have Wifi hotspot no matter your data limit. Using only 2 GB and I'm able to use my hotspot.

    I can't find that command "Wi-Fi Hotspot". I have Settings > More > Tethering & Portable Hotspot > Portable Hotspot. But I don't see the password anywhere.

    Spent 1-1/2 hours in the AT&T store...no joy. Ended up having to do a factory reset. All works now. Now comes the "fun" of resetting the phone to the way it used to be... :-(

    I meant in the app itself. But all right.
