Default Curve 9330 as mobile hot spot

Please Login to Remove!

I use my Curve tethered for occasional Internet access while on the road. BlueTooth connection for the VZAccessManager, although it is fully supported by VZAccessManager, seems to be somewhat flaky, so I currently rely on a physical USB connection.

My data service includes mobile WiFi hotspot ability, but I cannot tell if my Curve has that capability. WiFi would certainly be simpler than pulling out and connecting my USB cable every time I want to get online from my laptop, and the VZAccessManager is not my favorite program.

Does the Curve 9330 have the ability to host a WiFi hotspot, either natively or with an OS upgrade?

The 9330 does not have that capability.

Are you using a 9330 as the post indicates or an 8300 as your profile shows? If the 9330, please update your profile.

Some OS 7 devices maybe getting hotspot capability, but the 9330 cannot run OS 7.
