Why did my Galaxy Tab stop working as a hotspot for my computer?

Episode 976 (2:27:12)

Pete from Florida

Pete bought a Samsung Galaxy Tab with 4g and uses the hotspot to connect his computer. But after a few months, the tablet started dropping him from the hotspot signal. Leo says that a MiFi would've been a better option. And if he's replaced it a few times, there's clearly an ongoing design issue here. A guest in the studio says that the tablet may have a bad phone number. Go to Verizon and ask them to change it.
