Mobile hot spot 9380

I wanted to use the Mobile hot spot feature on my phone as mentioned in the user manual. It is something that can be really handy for me. to use this as per the user guide, i went to manage connections icon, however, there was no tab for Mobile Hotspot with any check box. Does that mean i dont have this feature? Its strange since my user manual clearly mentions that there is.

Even if this is anything to do with my service provider, I believe the option should still appear.

 

Any information will help. Thanks!

Hello AnamikaG

 

Welcome to the Community

 

You may still have the stock OS on your phone and needs an upgrade to an updated OS for you to enjoy the Mobile Hotspot Feature. The links below will guide you on how to update the device's OS to probably OS7.1 just choose one.

You may also contact your Carrier first and ask them if the Data Plan you have supports the Mobile Hotspot feature. Goodluck and please let us know if this helps you.
