    I am unable to activate the hotspot on my passport. Its not the sim because i have unlimited data and it works in an iphone 6. My os is version .908 that came with the device. I have also tried the latest leak but there was no change. Any ideas?

    At the moment I am being asked to input a password and then when i hit the on switch it merely says 'connecting'.

    Have any of you had this problem?

    I have just installed .1016 and did the sic wipe before but it still didnt work. I see a link to radios - do I need to install these also for the passport? If it worked for anyone on .1016 please let me know what they did.

    Thanks

    I am giving up on this. None of it makes sense .1154 was released before the passport so I am not going near that. It seems BB need to fix this in the next software update.

    It may be carrier related. Have you checked with your carrier to ensure the hotpot feature is active on your account? Typically it is not allowed on unlimited data accounts.

    I have TMO with the 908 update. Hotspot still works fine with my $30 unlimited plan.

    I have used my sim in an Iphone 6 and the hotspot works instantly. That's why its confusing... Especially if its working for you guys on .908

    Ok to update you; its definitely a carrier thing. It seems that the Passport may require specific APN settings for the mobile hotspot to work. I just got to London and the mobile hotspot works perfectly with my vodafone sim. It instantly turned on and I am on OS 10.3.0.908. Previously when I first launched the post, I was in Bahrain on the VIVA network.

    I'm on Batelco Bahrain and it doesn't work, do I need to input the APN somewhere to have it work. It worked bed the OS update though.

    Hi Ayman, which OS update are you referring to? Did it work after you updated?

    If you manage to get it working let us know please. Viva say that we have all the settings we need and there is no problem from their side. I am waiting for the next OS update

    What I identified is,hotspot password is not saving permanently in the settings. If you close and open the settings password disappeared.

    Ajmal I see from an earlier post that you managed to get it working so why do you still claim to have a problem?

    I'm running 10.3.0.908 and since I upgraded to 908 the Hotspot didn't work. It was working fine the OS that first came with the passport.
