Hotspot found but "unable to join the network" message on other devices

I have turned on the EVO's hotspot and other devices (itouch, ipad, laptop, etc) are able find the network but so far nothing can actually connect to the EVO's network. I always get "unable to join the network" on the itouch andother devices regardless of the security setting (even with no security). Please advise?



I called Sprint and we resolved the problem by restoring all the factory settings. I had to wipe out everything I had set up on the phone (all downloaded apps, passwords, favorites, etc) but at least the hot spot is working.


Follow-up #2:

The hot spot feature worked for about a day. I'm back "unable to join the network" response on all devices.


Follow-up #3:

Called Sprint technical support and they helped me restore all the factory settings (again). All settings, apps, accounts, passwords, favs must be reloaded.The things we do for wifi.
