    Find the thread for 7.1.0.378, either here or in the Leaked OS section. There should be links in the thread. You need to DL it to your computer, install to computer, delete the vendor files, and use DM or Apploader to install on your phone.

    Do you have a newer OS on your computer &/or phone? If so, there are some other steps necessary.

    The download address for 7.1.378 from Mobilicity is:
    https://swdownloads.blackberry.com/D...BBAC5CAAD7F186

    .378 was the best download yet and hotspot was free. Make sure and delete the vendor.xml files on your desktop or laptop prior to upgrading. If you are using a MAC and not a PC, I know that there some issues upgrading and downgrading as someone on here could not make it work. I cannot speak to Mac's as I am only familiar with PC's. Regardless, the links are good. Good luck.

    Got it! Had quite a few issues along the way; it took me a total of about 3 hours but I finally got it working. Loving the free hotspot and the "faux 4G" logo in the corner.

    Awesome. Sorry I couldn't get back sooner. Glad you're all set, though. One side note. Others who have mentioned "getting caught"and AT&T just automatically changing their data plan to include the cost of tethering. If you use it sparingly, such as only when there's no wifi available, you should be OK. If you use a lot of data, that will show up in their system and they'll act accordingly.

    Yes, you should be okay. I would avoid streaming video and large downloads to be safe. You can keep track of your data consumption by calling *Data# and they will text your data usage up to date. I have used it many times going back to when .378 was released and have had no trouble. AT$T will send a warning if they feel you are using tethering without the plan before they make any alterations to your plan.

    They told me about it in the AT&T store when I bought the phone. If they hadn't, I never would have found out. I like that ot also keeps track of texts. There are some other ones that can give you your minutes but I'm not sure what it is.

    It is the .378 version. It shows up at the top of the page as v7.1.0.1276, but that means build .1276 of version .378, if that makes sense.

    It's the right one I promise.

    I've used this feature to stream Netflix at my house where I'm 4G.

    It should be the same no matter who your carrier is. Believe me, if it works with AT&T, it will work with anyone. Once the Vendor.xml files are gone, there is no way to tell what carrier OS it is. Again as mentioned above, excessive use will alert any carrier of data usage. Good luck and enjoy!

    I don't know where you are, but I haven't seen very many phones $1,000 or over, even off contract and unlocked. AT&T charges $50 (not $5) a month for 5 gig with tethering. I'm paying $30 a month for my grandfathered unlimited plan. By all means, if you want to send me the $20/month difference, I might consider switching to the 5 gig tethered plan.
