Troubleshoot issues related to mobile hotspots and your Samsung Galaxy Mega

Last Updated: Aug 03, 2016

This article helps troubleshoot mobile hotspot issues on your Samsung Galaxy Mega.

You may have mobile hotspot issues if you:

  • See Error 67 on your Samsung Galaxy Mega™
  • Can't connect another device to your Samsung Galaxy Mega mobile hotspot
  • Connect to the mobile hotspot but can't browse

These steps help identify and resolve the underlying cause. After completing each step, test to see if the issue is fixed. If not, continue to the next step.

  1. Verify you've enabled and set up mobile hotspot on your Samsung Galaxy Mega.

    Turn Wi-Fi hotspot on.

    Set up Wi-Fi hotspot.

  2. Verify your Samsung Galaxy Mega is connected to the Sprint network using Sprint Zone.

    Be sure mobile data is enabled and functioning for mobile hotspot to work properly.

    1. Access Sprint Zone.
    2. Swipe from Right to Left to open Device Diagnostics.
    3. Look for Network:
      • Network is in the Passed section: Your phone is connected to the Sprint network.
      • Network is in the Failed or Flagged section: Update the Data Profile.
        1. From Device Diagnostics, tap System Updates.
        2. Tap Update Profile.
        3. After the profile update is complete, tap OK.
  3. Verify your subscription has an active mobile hotspot add-on.

    On sprint.com, log in to My Sprint to verify the add-on is active on the subscription.

    Without the hotspot add-on, you can't share your Samsung Galaxy Mega mobile hotspot with other devices.

  4. Perform a soft reset.

    A soft reset reconnects your Samsung Galaxy Mega to the Sprint network.

    1. Turn your phone off.
    2. Remove the battery. After 30 seconds, reinsert the battery.
    3. Turn your phone back on.

Note: To optimize device performance, be sure your Samsung Galaxy Mega is running the most recent device software. Check for software updates.
