Re: Hotspot internet connectivity issues

Apparently I find the solution which resolve my problem, its not mine, I find it on other forum. I changed my APN (acces point name) on android phone, which you can find in mobile network settings by clicking advanced settings. I leave the link with instruction how to change APN, when choosing APN protocol, choose only IPv4. I only changed apn, I didn't touch mms settings like it shows in the link. Now everything works, hope this will help other people too. https://www.bt.com/help/mobile/getting-set-up/how-to-change-apn-settings-on-an-android-mobile-phone

Re: Hotspot internet connectivity issues

Could be your Content Lock . It is switched on on new & upgraded contracts & seems to affect social sites. If just switching it OFF doesn't help, try switching it to STRICT, reboot your device and then switching it to OFF. That is seeming to do the trick.
