    Re: Not able to access hotspot on HTC Sensation XE since ICS update

    The recent Ice Cream Sandwich update to the HTC Sensation seems to have brought in a lot of improvements and features to it but it has also killed the ability to use the phone as a WiFi Hotspot by using Internet tethering options. We had covered a article yesterday on thishere wherein the update stops the users from using hotspot option but with the above mentioned app it can again be made available.

    i recommend you to use
    FoxFi
    FoxFi is a small yet useful application that is available in the Android Play Store here and it can help you to use your cellular data / internet plan as a WiFi Hotspot utility. The best part of using this application is it does not require any rooting access or a special internet tethering plan from your carrier. Access Point is infrastructure mode with WPA2 security making it one of the secure options as well.
    By getting the app and installing it, a very simple set of options open up as soon as the app is launched. Once you are set with choosing your WiFi Hotspot name and Encryption type, choose your password and youre set to go. You can connect to the smartphone from anyWiFi enabled devices like laptops or gaming consoles.

    Dear,
    It may possible that ics upgradation is not successfully done in your device.
    Here you need to perform a factory data reset on your device.
    Settings>>>Privacy>>>Factoyry data reset
    Thts it.
    it will restore all your default settings.
    No issues will there any more.

    1) Looks like some important data associated with the Device is corrupted, you need to restore that in order to get that working.
    2) Try updating all the features by connecting the device to the internet.
    3) Trouble shooting Apps are available in Google play, install them and check for errors.
    4) Get help from the service center Guys if you are unable to find the root cause of the problem.
