Incorrect Network SSID of Wi-Fi Hotspot :


When users do the initial set of Wi-Fi hotspot network SSID settings, the last 4 digits of

phone number should be displayed but instead different numbers are shown, as

visible in the below picture.


As default, SSID is supposed to display 'Model _last 4 digits(of phone number)'

when doing initial boot.

However, If users do initial booting without inserting SIM, SSID number will be displayed randomly.

Once Hot spot SSID is set, SSID can not be changed automatically even if SIM is inserted.


This is a normal behaviour of the device, however the SSID can be changed as per below process.
