Bold 9780 mobile hotspot

Hi there,

 

Please can someone help?

 

I have been told that I am unable to use my Bold 9780 as a mobile hotspot since it does not have the os v7 and that I am unable to upgrade to that os version on this phone!!

 

Is this correct?

 

Isn't there any way to upgrade the software if that is the only issue?

 

many thanks,

 

Rob

Re: Bold 9780 mobile hotspot

Hi rob909

 

Welcome to BlackBerry Support Community Forums

 

 

Yes it is true you need one of the OS 7.1 phones which support Mobile Hotspot and your device Bold 9780 cannot be updated to OS 7.1 . In addition to that this feature depends on Carriers because all Carriers does not support Mobile HotSpot .
