Re: bold 9900, can it be set up as a wireless router

Yes it works on my bold 9900 in the top of the front screen under manage options it comes as a feature.  you need to contact your cell company to see if they are supporting this feature.  From the time I posted my original comment hear it simply did not work on my phone and i gave up and then one day my phone gave me the option of mobile hotspot so i am pretty sure this is a cellular provider issue for you.  The phone has always been touted as being able to do this and it works well. 

 

Maybe Blackberry activated this feature but between the two it simply appeared.  I was going to trade my BB in as soon as I could to get this feature but now I don't have too.

 

good luck

Thanks for the quick reply.  What Service Provider are you using?  Is it T-Mobile, ATT or some other carrier?

 

Thanks.

Would you be able to help me set up my Blackberry Bold 9900 as a wireless router please?

I am currently with T-Mobile as phone service provider, any help you could provide would be gratefully received.
