Smile Can a blackberry be used as a hotspot?

Please Login to Remove!

I have a blackberry bold 9780 with T-Mobile + the data plan.
I was wondering if anyone knew if we can use the blackberry as a hotspot?
Not as a tether/bluetooth modem. I already know how to use that. Its for ipad/other labtop purposes.

If you do how?
Thanks in advance. :}

No, the BlackBerry currently does not have the ability to be a WiFi hotspot.

We await BB6.1 for hoping that feature becomes available.

The new versions of the Bold and Torch will supposedly be Hotspot capable

Interesting article.

Take a look at BlackBerry Mobile HotSpot and tethering for OS 6.1 | CrackBerry.com
