Blackberry 9780 use as hotspot

Hello,

I heard that it is now possible to use the 9780 as a hotspot. How can I do it? I am using 6.0 Bundle 2949 /v6.0.0.668

wlan version 4.3.0.97

thanks for help!

You would have to update your Bold 9780 for this to work.

Connect your device to BlackBerry Desktop Software and,  Click on Device, than Update.  A window will pop up saying there are no BlackBerry Device Software updates available.  Click on the lower left, "View Other Versions" and look for the 6.1 Bundle to install.
