Is anyone aware of an app (or potentially BB functionality!?!) that would allow you to turn your BB into a mini WiFi hotspot? i.e. Can connect other devices to BB via WiFi and use the BB data connection
I'm due to change device shortly and would really like this functionality on my next phone (I currently have BB8900 and a separate MiFi device (Novatel), but this involves two sep. devices, two data plans, etc. etc.
It sounds like ifans have this functionality with an app named MiWi (need jailbreak) and Android also provides this (v2.2+)
(I quite fancy the Torch, but BB really need to provide feature parity with the ever improving competition...!!)
If security is not important to you, get an iPhone or an HTC Evo and set up a WiFi hotspot app. BlackBerrys are designed with security at heart.
with all due respect this is bb forum not htc or iphone. It will be nice to have one so you can use it while the internet browser still sucks . I could turn on the wifi and use my ipod at the same time ! why not ? Security ?? if somebody is willing to hack your system he well do it no matter what.
