    It's worth repeating that you should check with your carrier before utilizing this feature...I almost got a HUGE bill because my plan didn't include the hotspot feature.

    You can get away with regular surfing...but I would strongly advise you to stay away from music/video downloads.

    So what kinds of speeds would be usable using Torch as mobile hotspot for laptop? Could it replace my broadband 3g usb modem? Could it be faster than bluetooth tethering on Playbook? Both are on Verizon, both have grandfathered unlimited data plans.

    Do you have OS version 7.1?
    Does your service provider support that feature?

    If the carrier doesn't support it, then it will not show up.
