I just got my Bold today, I've always been a Blackberry user however Hot Spot was something I was almost positive RIM's flagship phone would have. I need to know if it is coming or not. If you could give us a brief update on what is developing regarding it, I know tons of users would appreciate across this forum and many more.

This will be the last blackberry I buy. I was told by my rogers dealer that the bold 9900 could be set up as a router/hotspot. Time to change to the iphone in 2 years i guess

I loaded the latest Bold 9900 OS (7.1 Bundle 921) last week and surprisingly, the load went without a hitch. Sadly, my previous experience with RIM updates (especially of the Desktop Manager) has been bloody awful. I might have to change my tune, as not only did the update go perfectly, but now THERE IS A HOTSPOT FEATURE BUILT INTO THE BOLD 9900!!!! And with a couple of simple setup steps, my iPad 2 connects to the Internet via my BlackBerry Telus 3G connection.
Nice work RIM. I don't know why I had to stumble onto the added feature (I only noticed the Hotspot option when I went to connect to a WiFi). RIM must be run by a bunch of strange folks. This feature is SO important that they should be running it up the flagpole. Us Canadians are a bit quiet by nature, but c'mon, tell your clients when you do good!
