cannot connect Nexus 7 to Rezound mobile hotspot


I switch to VZW Share Everything which includes the Mobile Hotspot. I cannot get my Nexus 7 to connect to the mobile hotspot. I keep getting the message that there is no Internet. The hotspot turns on fine on the Rezound. I can get it working with some difficulty while at home but when Ieave home I have the problem. My N7 shows it's secured to the VZW hotspot network with WPA2. I've tried inputting my cell phone number as the password and then it hangs on Obtaining IP Address. What am I doing wrong???????????

Thank you,

I'm having the same issue. It is giving me an "authentication failed" error message after the Nexus 7 obtains an ip address. Some help would be appreciated!

Re: cannot connect Nexus 7 to Rezound mobile hotspot

I too have been trying to get the Nexus 7 to connect to my Rezound with zero luck...

I am using an <deleted> rezound and it is on the most current software using a a tiered data plan.

It makes every effort to connect but when attempting to get an ip address, if fails...

anyone get an answer yet?
