Car Dock automatically enables Sprint Hotspot

I've noticed since the Ice Cream Sandwich update that the phone automatically enables Sprint Hotspot when I dock the phone into my car dock. Is there any way to disable this from happening? This causes my phone to disable mobile connection since I do not have the service enabled.

Yeah, I noticed that too.  I have yet to find a way to correct this.  Although I haven't really done that much other than turning off my phone.

Found the fix to the issue.

1. Open "Dock Mode" app.

2. Click properties button and select Settings.

3. Disable the "Portable Wi-Fi- hotspot" checkbox.

After doing this, never had a problem with hotspot turning on anymore.

Thanks SFXXI.  I use my car dock nearly every day, so thanks to you, I now have one fewer irritation to contend with.
