    I've been surfing around to try and find out how to "accept" a Hotspot agreement with my Playbook. Well, rather than having folks do what I did, here's the simple answer. When your Playbook is "bridged" and you enter a wifi hotspot zone, you need to be able to click on the "accept terms" button on the hotspot page. However, while "bridged", you're taken to a Blackberry Hotspot Browser with the screen "you and now connected...". When you try and use the internet, you find you are not connected.

    SO...in order to see the "accept terms" button, disconnect your bridge and then retry. This will work for you....for sure!

    I used to turn off bluetooth, when I wanted to connect to a wifi hotshot, otherwise I had all kinds of problems. This issue disappeared for me at the last software update.

    If I understand your question - the pb probably can't provide internet to another device. The pb can use other devices access as the pb's hotspot.
