Re: How to:

Hey tns-re,

Welcome to the BlackBerry Support Community Forums.


Thanks for the question.


Mobile Hotspot is only available on BlackBerry smartphones running device software 7.1 and higher.  It is not available on the BlackBerry Bold 9700 or 9780 smartphone.  


Also this is a carrier controlled feature, you may need to get an extra data service to access the mobile hotspot.  For more information contact your network service provider.


Let me know if you have any more questions.
