Re: ROOTING BB 9350 On SPRINT Network

Rooting, on a BlackBerry?

I think you have something confused, BlackBerrys are not "rooted".

 

And, the 9350 model can not be used as a hotspot, sorry.

Re: ROOTING BB 9350 On SPRINT Network

The Manual for The Blackberry 9350 and Conversation Today with SPRINT, Say that it IS Possible to use the Blackberry Curve 9350 as a HOT SPOT

 

I am a little Confused and perhaps you can help me.

 

If it IS Possible to use the Blackberry 9530 as a HOT SPOT...Why Can't I ROOT the Device?

 

Please Explain it to me as I am NOT That Technically Knowledageable.

 

Tnx

Re: ROOTING BB 9350 On SPRINT Network

What is "root".

 

That term is not applicable to BlackBerry, so I don't know what you want to do.

Re: ROOTING BB 9350 On SPRINT Network

I believe Android Phones can be Rooted (i.e. Galaxy S4, HTC ONE)

 

I thought Blackberries could also be ROOTED.

 

What I am trying to do is set up my Blackberry Curve 9350 to act as a HOT SPOT without having to GO through SPRINT.

 

Can You help me to Do that?

 

I know I CAN get a HOT SPOT through SPRINT at a COST of $30 or $50 per Month and I wanted to See if like the Galaxy or HTC the Blackberry 9350 could accomplish this WITHOUT Paying an Exorbitant Monthly Charge

Re: ROOTING BB 9350 On SPRINT Network

Nope. This is not an android device. Can't be 'rooted'.

 

The mobile hotspot feature is enabled by the carrier (Sprint) and you can't do that without Sprint enabling it.
