    Default Issues with data dropping during mobile hotspot/tethering

    My data drops on and off every few seconds when I have it tethered. Its only started after the jb update.

    I've been banging my head against this issue over and over again.

    I can't ever get it to do it on command but it happens everyday at least once. Sometimes it doesn't work for hours.

    Verizon upgraded the tower in use the most and then said it was because I'm in a fringe area. So they are blaming where I live.

    Makes me mad, and it always happens when I have an online quiz or exam to take.

    Seems to be an issue with Verizon and jelly bean in my opinion. My gf bought the DNA and it had the same exact issue. She pays the hot spot fee as well. I never had this issue on my S3 until it was updated to jelly bean. Now on my note 2 it has the exact same problem.

    This is good to know. I never had issues on ICS. It's good to know that other phones have the issue. My wife's maxx does the same thing when I put my Sim card in her phone.

    Verizon needs to fess up and fix this.

    Had the same problem when I had the S3, and they sent me 2 replacements. After that did not work then they sent me a Note 2. I must say it is a little better, but still have major issues. Sometimes it can't activate hotspot till I reset and wait 20 min. I must say I did do a speedtest and it is faster than Fios. If it only stayed connected and ran like my old Palm pre I would be a very happy camper.

    I've been using my regular RAZR and it hasn't been a problem. Hmmm. Weird. Is hers a maxx HD or regular Maxx? I'm wondering if its jellybean and the modem or VZW may be using this to throttle somewhat. My sgs3 only does it when I'm using alot of data.

    I was sent a regular razr to 'troubleshoot' the issues that my S3 was having. My wife has a maxx.

    Mine too but only if I'm downloading something on my s3. It doesn't happen to the RAZR.

    I use my old razr cord here at work when it happens. I have it unplugged and its hauling. I might bring my samsung cord and see if it does it.

    Had the same issue and they finally gave me a NoteII. Now I was on the phone with them last night for 2 hours and they said it was my notebooks. I can connect 2 notebooks, but the third one locks everyone out. I also can only stay connected for 15 mins and then it hangs on everyone. No solution yet..

    Happened again today. I can't log into my school's Moodle. Data works, drops works, drops.

    Makes me want to throw my phone.


    Which I did.


    Tip: don't throw your phone.

    Now I need to save up for the $99 deductible. Cracked my screen.

    A temporary solution I have found is to go into your remembered networks on the windows pc and remove the Hotspot. Seems removing it and reentering the password might hold its connection.

    Update on my tethering, been working great! I think I figured it out.

    Thing that sucks is I went back to a RAZR Maxx.

    I really think the true root of the issue is a problem with Verizon's hotspot and Jelly Bean. Something isn't working right between the two.

    4.1.2 has already been leaked so it probably won't be to long, I hope.

    was having the same problem... here's my sequence of events

    1. bought sgs3 with ICS and installed foxfi, worked great with no issues.
    2. vzw updated sgs3 OTA to JB and broke foxfi, tried other tethering apps (Fattin toggle, pdanet etc) nothing worked.
    3. did a factory restore, which fixed tethering for a few hours but then the data started dropping again, started getting really frustrated and considered rooting and reinstalling ICS
    4. tried changing the name of the hotspot and that seemed to fix Fattin and it has been working fine for about 3 days now

    This might be the problem. I had 3 devices connected when my data started dropping but lately have only been using 1 or 2!

    so i used fattin for hours last night with zero issues. today tried it and data starts dropping. tried renaming network and using pdanet neither worked. dont understand the inconsistency. lucky i still have my tab 2 running ICS and if all else fails my rooted tbolt. but the reason i bought the sgs3 is im sick of always swapping sims around

    so I searched around and I guess there is no way to downgrade back to ICS with a macbook pro since Odin doesn't work on mac. Is that correct?

    Is your phone rooted? If so, you can use https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...mobileodin.pro

    no unfortunately its unrooted. And as an update I was able to tether flawlessly tonight, have been using fattin since around 6 pm. I don't understand the inconsistency
