Re: Wifi Hotspot Activation Error

Your cellular network provider may have blocked the wifi hotpspot service on your subscription as some of them ask you to take an additional connection. Contact the service provider to have it enabled.

Re: Wifi Hotspot Activation Error

Some of the service providers such as At&T charge for the service. Many others who provide limited data plans provide it for free. I am not sure about your service provider.

Re: Wifi Hotspot Activation Error

talkmobile is a virtual network provider which runs on Vodafones network. I dont think you can use hotspot on it. You may contact talkmobile for further details.
