    I just bought this phone less than a week ago. I have a 30 GB plan with AT&T and have the appropriate provisioning to tether. However, the wifi AP drops intermittently across both my laptops. It will be working fine for a few minutes initially and then windows reports that it is having connectivity issues. I have to turn off tether and then turn it back on again. This keeps going for hours on end.

    When I switch my sim card back to my MOTO G (cracked but working screen) all my tethering issues go away. I believe there is something wrong with either the hardware or the software on this ONEPLUS phone. Is anyone else having the same issues? How did you get past it?

    Can I (Should I) return this phone due to this issue? Tethering problems is an absolute deal breaker for me as I travel for work and need to have connectivity at all times around the clock.

    I am also having issues with the camera not working after a while and the phone also stops going into landscape mode. All of these issues require a complete shut down and then restart. It then will randomly stop working again (takes minutes to hours for issues to show up again)

    Looks like my tethering starts having issues when I receive a text or call. I have tried all settings, modes, and security (or no security).

    I was away for the holidays when they responded. They automatically marked it as closed and shut me out of the ticket. Horrible service. I have to start all over. They wanted a video to prove what was going on first. So i have to go develop that first!!!! ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS!

    Here is a link to videos. First shows how my camera stops working and my intermittent tethering issues. The second video shows how my wifi locks up. Hardware lockups require reboot or a shutdown to fix. The tethering issue cannot be resolved.

    Second Video - Wifi Stops working
