9810 wifi hotspot

I am trying to turn my Torch 9810 into a hotspot, never having done so before. AT&T couldn't seem to help me with that, and I desperately need this for a trade show for my business tomorrow! Please somebody help me if you can!!

Re: 9810 wifi hotspot

Hi and Welcome to the Community!

Here is a KB that discusses how to accomplish that:

  • KB31857 How to setup and manage a Mobile Hotspot Connection

Hopefully it contains something useful! Note carefully that it's a matter having BOTH OS7.1.x.x on your BB as well as an adequate data plan from your carrier. The fact that ATT could not help you is worrisome...so give it a try (if you've already got OS7.1 that is) and, if it fails, you'll have to ring up ATT and try to get escalated out of their front line folks and up to their dedicated BB-support folks (they have that).


Good luck and let us know!
