    I just got my Galaxy s6 a couple of weeks ago off Craigslist. It was only a month old when I bought it. My problem is tethering. When I am using the tether/hotspot feature it will randomly drop connection to my electronic devices such as my Xbox One, PS4, laptop and tablet. When it does this I immediately look at the signal strength on whichever device I'm on. Every time I look they show great strength but yet I am not connected. If I go into my settings and forget network then reconnect my devices all is well for a minute, two minutes or hours. Any help would be a big help. Thank you!

    Do you realize with Verizon you can't use data and get or make a call simaltainoiusly. When tethered via Bluetooth or a hotspot it will drop every time you receive or make a phone call. Same with Sprint but T-Mobile and AT&T work fine.

    Yes I knew it drops data during calls. This is an example of what it's doing. I get home from work and want to watch Netflix or Hulu on my Xbox one. I turn on the Tethering and it connects to the Xbox. I click on House Of Cards and after a little bit it will kick me off Xbox Live due to no Internet connection. It does this a few times a hour. My Galaxy s4 never did this. I could tether all day every day. Is there a know issue with the tethering feature on the s6?
