My BB is running OS 7.1 and I want to use it as a modem for other phones ! But I don't have a hotspot option in the manage connection, how I can make it appear ?!

Best regards

Note carefully that the use of the HotSpot function is not just a matter of the proper OS level...it also requires your service provider to allow for it.


Good luck!
