    Question New online update says MUVE...

    I was just wondering if this new online update is anything besides just adding muve to the ascend 2? If so I don't think I will update as I just stream with tune in radio anyways.
    Thanks in advance,
    Lee

    I think it's mainly for Muve Music. It might enable the tethering built in to Android, but I'm not sure.

    Yup, it's got the Muve and Tethering apps. I would recommend installing it even if you're not using either of those services, because I'm not certain those are the only changes that were made. The update could potentially include other bug fixes, optimizations, etc.

    That last bit is important. You'll want to update even if you don't use Muve Music or tethering.

    Ok, another question. how come when I go to turn on the wifi hot spot it doesn't say anything about charges or none of that. On my g/f's verizon lg revolution if you try and turn on wifi hot spot it has a big warning page first that makes you agree to the monthly charge. I accidently turned on wifi hotspot for about 5 seconds. I will not be happy if i get an extra 10$ a month charge... Update went smoothly though...
    Thanks,
    Lee

    it won't add it on to your bill without warning you first, so it is safe to assume you can't automagically add it to your bill. we can add it on at the store and customer care can add it as well. make sure to let us know if it starts blocking you or charging you though.

    even though it's not even on the website under add ons it is still an add on? I wonder if anyone else is using it and not getting charged or what the deal is. IMHO I think there shouldn't be a charge as long as your not using an excessive amount of bandwith every month what's the diff...
    thanks again,
    Lee

    It was on there under addons.. I wonder why they took it down hmm thats strange, I don't understand why they would charge $10 more and not give you extra or unlimited data, maybe it has something to do with them taking the addon off.. Hmm
