Re: Internet 3 G on playbook?


   If you have a cell phone using 3G network and, it support hot spot function, so you can share WIFI to PlayBook.

Another situation is , if your cell phone has a 3g network, you can use "Internet Tethering" function on your PlayBook.

The steps are:

1. Connect your cell phone and PlayBook via bluetooth.

2. PlayBook, goto Option - Internet Tethering, and then go through the steps.

3. After that, you can use your mobile 3G network on your PlayBook.



If it can help you with the questions, please click resolved for me, thank you.

I will try my best to help you with the issue you get.
