Captivate Tethering/AP Mobile/Hotspot Not Working All of the Sudden

Checking to see if anyone has had this issue.

 

I have the 4GB Tethering plan for mobile hotspot and has been working fine.

 

Yesterday worked fine, but today, nothing.

 

I was on the phone with ATT for a while trying to figure it out. After several battery pulls, account resets, and removing and re-establishing the tethering plan, no luck.

 

The best I get now is that i can activate the hotspot, then i connect my Xoom, and after about 15 seconds, disconnects and Captivate says that tethering is not enabled.

 

Anybody got any ideas?

 

My last resort is a system reset.

Try This...

 

 

Samsung Captivate and HTC Aria. Error:

 

"Tethering/ Mobile AP is not setup for this account."

 

Menu> Settings> application> Running Services>

 

Disable the "Tethering Manger " then test, it should work dough..

Interesting as no one from
ATT ever mentioned that!

I actually ended up warranty replacing the phone!

So worked out in the end. But if it ever comes back I'm trying that.
