Yes, it works.  I've connected with iPads and laptops without problems.  You can even change the default SSID to something like "BlackberryRules!".


Warning... battery life is shorter and you might want to get an extended battery.  Love my 16800 Momax Turbo.

Also be prepared to rack up some data charges, especially if you are roaming in your travels.

An external battery like a Mophie Juice Pack Powerstation can come in handy if you're going to be using your Hotspot feature for any extended period of time.

Go to settings --- network connections---scroll down to Internet Tethering---then turn on.


This will connect to another device via blue tooth. I see no option to tether via wi fi


Hope this helps

Instead of Morphie, I prefer Momax that offers nearly 3 times the capacity, but the price is less....
