    All the 7.1 versions have wifi hotspot capability. Some carriers, like AT&T require you to pay a tethering plan. If you are trying to work around that and are on AT&T, 7.1.0.378 is the version to rock. When OS versions are discussed on the forum, they use the number that is in the parenthesis following the number you quoted.

    I played with .694 and a .694 hybrid, but they needed a tethering agreement with AT&T. Since I only use it when I don't have wifi available and don't want to lose my grandfathered unlimited plan, I went back to .378. If anything, after a a complete wipe and reinstall, it works even better than before. The only rocky thing was that emails didn't show images while the OS was settling in. Now fixed.
