I have the same exact issue with frequent disconnects from hotspot, just talked to customer service but no help.
I had the same issue when I first got HTC Thunderbolt when it was released in April 2011, but it took almost 6 months for Verizon/HTC to fix the issue. Hopefully for s3, fix would come out faster this time around.
I have had the S3 since day one. During extended hotspot usage the phone reboots itself. I to had the same issue with the HTC Thunderbolt back when it first came out. This is my first Samsung. I hope they are better than HTC and hope their relationship with Verizon is better than HTC and Verizon who loved to blame each other for the Thunderbolt issues. Also having issues keeping my phone in 4g. Anyone find a LTE switch?
Not being able to use the mobile Hotspot would be very frustrating. Let's get this fixed quickly so you can go back to enjoying your Samsung Galaxy S3.
Please try changing the setting to "Allow All Devices to connect" from "Only allowed devices". This is located at the top of the Mobile Hotspot screen, right below where you can toggle it off and on.
Please let me know if this helps, if not we can further troubleshoot.

There is no such option. When I’m in the browser and hit the left soft button I see the following options:
Add shortcut to home
Find on page
Save for offline reading
This phone, despite all its rave reviews, is not nearly as intuitive as the Droid Xs.
Thanks for your assistance.
By looking at the menu list you posted.... All you have to do is scroll the list further down and you will see the option you need to change...
Just open browser and select left menu button and then scroll the lost further upward and the option for controlling the backlight should be there.
I had issues connecting to my hotspot and being kicked off when I did connect. I went to my hotspot settings. Goto security and check if your on WPA PSK2, if so change it to WPA PSK and save it . I have not had any problems since I changed it! Good luck, I hope it works for you :)
