I have working Verizon LG V10 VS990 on Rogers network but am unable to use tethering. I understad that Verizon is blocking the tethering but I should be able to use it on Rogers.

Good Afternoon @alekcwik,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums!

 

Unfortunately, as this is a device that Rogers does not support, there is limited support we can provide you with for your issue.

 

Have you ensured that your APN settings are set up correctly?

 

Check out this great How To article on how to set up your APN settings with Rogers. You can also read the information in this thread for further information.

 

Hope this helps!

You will probably need to either root it or flash a different providers software to get it to work, as it's disabled by Verizon in the software, not just the network.

Unfortunately root or flash of VS990 is impossible as of today.

Thank you for your response. I checked the APN settings and they are ok.

 I have also problem to forward my phone number (*90). It goes directly to Verizon and it does not work.

Re: Unlocked Verizon LG V10 tethering

@alekcwik,

 

To activate call forwarding with Rogers please follow the instructions below:

 

*21*(10 digit phone number)# Send

 

Hope that helps!

I may be able to activate call forward on Rogers One Number.

Re: Unlocked Verizon LG V10 tethering

@alekcwik,

 

Did Call Forwarding work for you using Rogers One Number?

 

Let us know!

I am unable to log on to my Rogers One number using my phone but was able to do it using a Web browser on my computer. I tested the call forward and it worked.

On my phone the Validate Address does not work.

After few trials I was able to activate my Rogers One Number on the LG V10. The problem was with 911 address. The form is not user friendly at least on this phone. I was not able to scroll the postal code entry above displayed keybard. When I entered Postal code it created a space after the entry and it was not accepted. Unfortunately I was not able to see it. Finally I changed the way I entered the info and found out what happend. After the correction, the verification and registration worked ok. It makes a big difference. Tethering is still a problem but I do not think I will be able to resolve it on this phone without root which is not available - Verizon!!

Hi Alek, was wondering if you had any luck tethering with the vs990

Re: Unlocked Verizon LG V10 tethering

Unfortunately did not find a solution yet. I guess, the only option is root which is not available.

How do you find coverage? Any drop calls?

I have set it up on Global and it works pretty well.

Seems like some progress, regarding the Verizon LG v10 on XDA forums!

Thanks for the update.  Seen it yesterday. I am still not sure how it is going to help with the Wi-Fi hot spot. Posted question on XDA. Will see what happened.

I've had luck with this paid app, with most of my Android devices, except my note 3
