New to Modding Phone -- Optimus V Want to WiFi Tether
I had an Optimus V, installed Quick Settings, had no trouble getting phone to WiFi tether to my laptop and 3G iPad 2. Phone was replaced, installed Quick Settings and WiFi menu no longer appears. From what I've been able to learn, with the update to 2.2.2, the WiFi capabilities have been disabled. Correct?
I have installed PDAnet and that works fine but would prefer to have WiFi capability, if possible, so I can use the phone for Internet access for my iPad 2.
I'm not a geek and have never "rooted" a phone so I want the easiest, least intrusive way to add WiFi capability to my Optimus V.
I'm on my last day of the 30-day exchange period and am thinking of returning the phone and exchanging it for the VM Samsung Intercept. But I'm not sure that it's PDAnet capable and if its WiFi has been disabled too.
Does anyone have any suggestions for me. Is rooting the phone the only answer to re-enable the Optimus V's WiFi capability?
