Which phones have wifi hotspot facilities?
Alright all i have is an ipod touch 4 white and its been around 6 months and i need a blackberry but i'm low on budget this time, just around $200-300
I'm searching for a blackberry phone for that range that could act as a wifi hotspot for my ipod touch so i can use internet on my ipod.
This kinda really sucks BB phones are not similar to iphones where you could update to latest versions of OS
I read i can only use BBs as a wifi hotspot if i have OS7 ,is that true?
Or is there any way to get it on os5 or os6 in some way using some app or by cracking it or something ,just like jailbreak?
I know its a very low budget and the best i could get was BB 8520 which has only os5 and some (2-3) people said its not possible to use BB as hotspot unless you have os7
Really in a middle of nowhere where i dont have enough budget and i need one which can help me use internet on my ipod as well :/
**PS i'm not in any country where its some contract with att,etc.
Also,this is my parents money so theres no way to increase the budget either ,please help guys I would really appreciate any help

Bold 99xx has hotspot capabilities. Can't speak for other devices.
Make sure your carrier provides the mobile hotspot service.

No sorry man, with BB, you need one of the OS 7.1 phones. For starters, what providers can you choose from?
With that budget, look for a Curve 9320 or 9310, they run 7.1 and have hotspot capability
They are pretty affordable though, under $200.
