Have bought this device just for two functions - wifi hotspot for my tablet and voip calls.
Second is OK. But can't make hotspot. 7.1 OS is not available for my device and no other app for 6th OS can make it also. Where is solvation? All other OS and even symbian have this feature.
Hope i'll get it solved vEEry soon, otherwise sell device and never buy BB in future.

Hi and Welcome to the Community!
Given your post, I'm almost sure that you've already read this, but just in case:
Note carefully please that HotSpot has two requirements -- OS7.1 and a data plan from your carrier that enables it. Not meeting either will prevent the use of HotSpot.
There is no way around the OS level requirement...it is what it is. You can I suppose seek out 3rd party app solutions, but given how deeply integrated the HotSpot function is to the OS, I doubt there are any.
Comparisons to other OS's are academically interesting, but not relevant to the actual situation...it is what it is.
As to that...you only waited 10 hours. In a volunteer-contributed user-to-user community (which this is), it is customary and polite to wait 24 hours before "bumping"...after all, the other volunteers have their lives to live as well.

As for now i can't find the solution from third party suppliers and also can't update to 7.1 (it does not exist for pearl 9105). I just wanted to find out if this kind of solution is expected for my phone in nearest furure otherwise i don't see the reason not to sell my device.
Thanx for reply anyway.

Given the nature of this site (a user-to-user community, with Ts and Cs barring certain things), it is unlikely that anyone will be able to give you an answer to that "forward looking" question.
