How to Make BB Torch a Hotspot

Is there a way for me to make my Torch a hotspot? I have a mobile share plan and could remove my tablets completely if my Torch could give them access to internet.

If your 9810 Torch is on OS 7.1.0.400 or greater and your mobile carrier allows it, you will have the hotspot feature on your 9810.

Thsx. It is on 7.0.0.583. Is there a dowload to move it to the latest OS?

As long as you upgrade to something greater than 7.1.0.400 you'll have it.

 

I think ATT's latest release is 7.1.0.714
