WiFi HotSpot Connection

Dear BlackBerry Community


I have had my BBTorch 9800 OS6 over a year now which is a fantastic phone which compliments any work I undertake, as I do use my phone as a modem.

I find that at times I may have to text but this puts pressure on the connection plugs, when connected to the PC.

I have been trying to find a BB App which contains a WiFi Hotspot connector, one where I do not have to put pressure of the components of both my BB phone and PC.

I understand the Torch 9810 carries this application as standard, can this application be installed on the Torch 9800 but also found in our BlackBerry App World.


Any info concerning this will be much appreciated.


Yours Sincerely

Re: WiFi HotSpot Connection



Please refer to this KB:

  • KB31857 How to setup and manage a Mobile Hotspot Connection

The hotspot function is limited to 1) your carrier allowing such and 2) having OS 7.1 on your BB. HotSpot is not an add-on app available via any means other than meeting those two contingencies.


Good luck!
