    Got everything running great, but when I try to use the 9900 as a hotspot, I get redirected to a page (in osx firefox browser) telling me that I need to have a tethering plan. I have BES service on my 9900 (thru my company). Is there another feature that needs to be added? My searches have revealed other users who seemed to have a plug & play experience after loading 7.1

    Thanks in advance

    Tethering used to be free with TMO, but early this year, it started to charge $15 monthly for tethering. However, with Bridge of my BB with PB, I dropped my tethering plan.

    This hotspot functionality may be no different, and TMO may really want to charge us by having the tethering plan. Pls call TMO to confirm.

    It may be smarter to just buy the Tether app. Does anybody know if the Tether app will work with hotspot and get away from paying the monthly tethering subscription from TMO?
