    Hi, is there anyway to hide the SSID? If not can someone in the beta program put the suggestion in?

    Thanks

    You are talking about the hot spot from your BlackBerry?

    I checked but there was nowhere a switch or something similar.
    Maybe someone knows better.

    Once you connect to your hotspot, go in to the hotspot options and uncheck the box that says 'allow other devices to connect'. That will hide your SSID.

    Spoke too soon. It's still visible, just won't let you connect.

    So what are you trying to do by hiding it. If you think it provides some sort of security put that out of your mind. Hiding the SSID only turns off the broadcast of the network ID. Anyone bent on hacking on to your Wi-Fi won't be stopped, or even slowed down by that.
