    The wheel won't stop spinning and it is killing my battery life. I have tried everything...resetting network settings, removing micro-sim...How do I stop it from constantly spinning??:mad:

    Did yu tried searching online for a solution. I found few things that may help:


    1. click on the internet tethering option, select
    "setup internet tethering," and then click on cancel. that will stop the continuous spinning wheel.

    2. Stop the application that may be accessing the network & reboot the device.

    hmmm strange...

    I hope this is what you are doing: Slide your Cellular Data slider to turn it on to stop the spinning wheel, and its show up Set Up Internet Tethering. That’s it.

    Yes, cellular data is on, but the wheel is still spinning and i can not press it; it is not giving me any option to disable. I have tried everything from removing the sim, to erasing network setting. I am annoyed by this bug. I figured this may be the cause of my battery drain issue. Even when I turn cellular data off,the internet tethering wheel still spins...

    Yes definitely it is the reason for less battery life. Perhaps contacting support may be the last option :confused:

    Excuse me for a double post- just figured out how to solve it!!!
    The easy way is just to screw up all your celular data settings in the celular data networks bar.

    Hopefully some one will come up with abetter solution to this nonsence so that we can use celular data network without worrying about our battery life drained by that tethering.
