9790 wifi hotspot
 
Hello,

I wonder if you can help please.
I have just taken delivery of a new 9790 and so far, I like it! (y)

I have however, been told that you can create a wifi hotspot with the phone for things like a laptop or tablet to connect through.

Is this correct or is the person who told me this, getting a wifi hotspot confused with BB Bridge?

Thanks in advance.

If you have OS v7.1 installed on the 9790 and your carrier allows it, then you will have wifi hotspot capability (not BB Bridge - that is for the Playbook).

It may be an additional cost from your carrier.

Thanks for that, the next question may seem daft but, ........... here goes!

How do I know if its available and how do I set it up?
I've had a quick look and can't seen anything obvious :?

I've downloaded the software.
Is this update difficult to install?
Will it lock my phone to a Norwegian carrier?
Do you know of anyone that has had any issues with this update?

Thanks in advance for the help (y) 8-)
