WI-FI Mobile Hotspot Active in BB OS7 on TOrch 9810?
Has anyone been able to confirm yet if the Mobile Hotspot feature will be active on the Torch 9810? We know that it was announced in BB OS7. However, most of the speculation so far has been that nobody knows rearding the 8910 and AT&T branded phones won't have it. That last part about AT&T seems silly since the iPhone has mobile hotspot enabled. This is the one feature that would convince me of an upgrade from my current Torch 1.

I saw something mentioned that the 9810 box had the words "wifi hotspot enabled" or something like that. However, on my ATT 9810 box, I cant find anything like that. I am not gonna be happy if ATT spec'd out phones without that capability.

Currently the 9810 has no wifi hotspot capabilities.
We do know that the 99xx series will get it in an OS upgrade, so there's no reason to think the 9810 won't get it also. You will more then likely have to use a leaked or another carriers OS to get it if on ATT.Cell Phone History:Motorola Bag phone > Motorola Star Tac gen1 > Motorola Star Tac gen 2 > Motorola Razr > BlackBerry Pearl(8110) > Iphone gen1 > BlackBerry Curve(8310 Red) > BlackBerry Torch(9800 Black) > BlackBerry Torch II(9810 Gunmetal Silver) > BlackBerry Bold 9900) > BlackBerry Z10(STL100-3 Black)

It's not a show-stopper for me, but it would be very nice to have on my BlackBerry. That said, I believe that, like UMA, it will very much be dependent on the carrier whether we see this feature in the wild.chronic BlackBerry addict and abuser
