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.

Re: Car Dock automatically enables Sprint Hotspot

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.

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.

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