Unfortunately, that isn't possible. WiFi Hotspot only works on OS 7.x. x. xxx devices.

Re: 8520 curve wifi hotspot

I believe you are confusing creating a HotSpot and Tethering. You should not have any issues tethering, providing your carrier allows it.

Re: 8520 curve wifi hotspot

Please excuse my ignorance about all this, but what's the differance between 'hotspot' and 'tethering'? And by carrier you mean?
