Re: Bold 9900 - Modem

Use the "Mobile hotspot" feature and your device will work as a wifi modem for up to 5 devices wifi enabled.

therefore other phones as well.

 

of course you have to download the update 7.1 for your OS if you're still running OS 7.0

Thank you for your prompt response.

And where can I find the official 7.1 OS?

 

Best regards.

Re: Bold 9900 - Modem

The "official" OS 7.1 might not have been released by your carrier yet.  If it has, go ahead and load it.  If it hasn't, you can download the OS from any carrier worldwide.  Here are the instructions for doing so:

I hope that helps you.  :smileyhappy:
