    If your carrier blocks it, then there is nothing you can do.

    You can try WiFi hotspot apps. If someone is there.

    I may have to. I don't see why I can't just load the is from another carrier that has the hot spot. Or just load that service book from the Internet

    Loading the OS from another carrier will NOT enable WiFi Hotspot. If your carrier is blocking it, then it is blocked at the network level not the device level.

    Get the tether app unless you want to connect more than a laptop.

    Default Re: I want wireless hotspot

    When you say more than a laptop, what do you mean? Meaning more than one device, or that the tethering app only works with a laptop. I'm a developer and lately I've been working on Internet Applications for automotive, but I need a handset with wi-fi hotspot for that, but I really really miss my BlackBerry (3 years later) and want to go back.

    BlackBerry tether apps are wired tethering. Which is why the user who mentioned other than using a laptop. The BlackBerry Curve 9310 has wifi hotspot capitabilities.

    Not on Boost Mobile. They block it carrier side.

    It's supported on Verizon, but you will be charged $60/month on average to use it. (Don't know Verizon's Hotspot plans. You'll have to check that out yourself.)

    Well it works over bluetooth also. What I mean is it won't work to tether and android tablet or ipad to your blackberry. It will only work for a PC or lappy.

    Forgot that it had Bluetooth functionality. Been using the USB wired method for so long, I forgot. :P

    Default pda net

    previously I used PDA net with an older version of blackberry and it worked GREAT even though it was supposed to limit use after 30 days. Now, my employer upgraded me to the Curve 9310, but cannot get PDA net to work on it as you can not disable the Native Dun and keep the ability for Bluetooth to connect for using it as a modem.

    maybe if PDA.net does some improvements I will give them a try again
