Hotspot on bold 9900

Hello dear Sirs, I have a 9900 Bold and I update it with the new version 7.1, but I still haven't the hotspot icon. Can someone help me on this matter? Kind regards Luis

Re: Hotspot on bold 9900

Hi and Welcome to the Community!


First, refer:

  • KB31857 How to setup and manage a Mobile Hotspot Connection

As you see, there are two requirements for the Hotspot function -- BB OS 7.1 as well as a service plan, from your mobile service provider, that enables it.


Good luck!
