Curve 9320 Mobile Hotspot

Hello everyone,

I am looking for some help regarding the BlackBerry Curve 9320 feature 'Mobile Hotspot' this is one of the main reason I brought this phone! (to replaced my Torch 9800 for a few months till contract runs out).

Any tips on getting this too work for me I am on Orange in the UK, I can use my old torch to tether my laptop so I am guessing this means my plan has tethering switched on? Could is be my OS? Current version 9320/7.1.0.398

Many thanks,
Best
Ant.

Tethering is different from mobile hotspot. You may contact your Carrier about it.

Ronbob is right. Some carriers charge extra so that you can use your phone's hotspot functionality.

 

Luckily for me, it's all included on my unlimited BIS/data plan...

 

Is 9320 already 7.1 out of the box?

Re: Curve 9320 Mobile Hotspot

Yeah... But I still like the 9360 better, even though my battery can only lst for about 5 hours with heavy use.

 

And speaking of 9320 hotspot functionality, for the carriers that charge extra for that, do they provide you with a username and password? Because my carrier just told me to input my Blackberry ID.

Re: Curve 9320 Mobile Hotspot

I shall check with my carrier. I brought the BlackBerry outright from Amazon, so maybe its not offically supported by my carrier just yet?

Thanks + much appreciated

Re: Curve 9320 Mobile Hotspot

Even if you bought it from Amazon, and it is not supported by your carrier, you can still use it. My carrier told me that since Blackberry runs on BIS, it can be used pretty much anywhere, you just have to get your service books sent to you by your Carrier.
