Anyone know how to allow your BB to be a wifi gateway using the 3G network? There is an application called Joikuspot but its only for Nokia and samsung. Apparently, the iphone has an app too. Anyone know if there is an app for BB? Would be VERY convenient to have this feature.
I have the original M7 by HTC. My mobile hotspot used to work very well, brilliantly in fact. Ever since updating to Lollipop (5.0.2) I have been unable to keep my hotspot on consistently. Even now, as I am writing this, the hotspot has been turned off by itself (disconnects me from the internet) and I have to turn my phone back on, and switch the hotspot back on.
Is it a setting somewhere I am missing, or do you think it's a bug within lollipop? Is there any other way to get to use the data I pay for as internet through my phone? I have tried doing a hard tether, but I can't find an option to use it as internet (only data transfer.)
Is anyone aware of an app in Cydia that will turn the iPhone into a WiFi hotspot? I'm of course jailbroken and tether via BT and USB but for various reasons interested in seeing if one turn the phone into a hot spot.
When I turn on the cellular data option the personal hotspot function bar appears with the wording "Personal Hotspot" and the wheel appears and goes around and around forever. If I turn the iPhone off and back on (with cellular data turned on) then the personal hotspot bar appears with the wording "Set up Personal Hotspot" and not wheel spinning. When the wheel is spinning I assume that processing is going on and using battery, not good! By the way I do not use the personal hotspot function.
My boss and I just bought two BlackBerry Torch 9810's under the impression that these phones had the ability to use the phone as a mobile HotSpot. At this point it appears that this function should be availble in BlackBerry OS 7.1. As far as I can see Sprint has just released this update about 3 days ago.I really need to know when this will be available for ATT Wireless, as that is our current provider. My boss is already planning on taking his BlackBerry back to ATT within his 30 day period so he can get a Droid that already has this function if we can't get some reassurance that this option is indeed going to become available and soon.I on the other hand, have had my phone for two months, but would rather have a BlackBerry over a Droid any day, but I did have the expectation that I could use the phone as a HotSpot or at least tether over WiFi, or else I may have sucked it up and gotten a Droid (even though I prefer BlackBerry).
Does any one know where I can find my password to allow people to use my hotspot. I cannot for the life of me remember if I created the password or if it was an automaticlly given one. I successfully used it at work but the password was saved on the devices so I did not have to remember it.
I was always using on other phones with Android 2.2 FroYo that 3G mobile hotspot feature, which was included right in the Android system under Wireless Networks settings.Now in Defy there is no option like that under settings in FroYo. Defy includes own app called 3G Mobile Hotspot, which should work like that option for creating mobile WiFi hotspots in other Android phones. But here is the problem.On my older phone with Android 2.2 I could create 3G WiFi hotspot wherever I needed and it worked. But now, with Defy, when I use that application 3G Mobile Hotspot, it writes me error when creating WiFi hotspot "Cannot set up data link, please contact your service provider" I suppose it is something with my carrier (Vodafone_CZ), but when I used 3G WiFi hotspots on older phones (which had that feature included right in Android settings menu) it worked without problems and I a used mobile phone for 3G internet sharing with my laptop.Now I remember, that I have deleted some DUN profile under APN Internet profiles, could it be that problem, that 3G Mobile Hotspot app is not working?how to create WiFi hotspot on my Defy for example with some other app?Or if not, how can I use Internet Tethering in Defy Mobile Networks menu via Bluetooth (my laptot has BT). I dont know, what should I set in my laptot to use Defy like BT 3G Internet provider and I dont know, if Internet Tetherig via BT is not charged at my carrier (I know, that the 3G WiFi hotspot feature was not extra charged..) so for that reason I would like to make it working on my Defy.

I keep getting the following message:"The network you are connected to appears to be a hotspot.You may be required to consent to legal terms and/or set up an account to get internet access. Hotspot operators may charge service fees for internet access". However, its a free network that my other devices, such as my playbook connect to without problems. When I click "OK" I get another message that says: "This is a Wi-Fi service. Please ensure your device has an active Wi-Fi connection and try again." I click OK, and it takes my to the BB browser, which of course doesn't work.Its like it wants me to give permission to use the network, but I need to use the network to give the approval.
-WiFi is enabled -Bluetooth is enabled -Other devices including Playbook currently work on the network -Repeatedly gives me the first message above, followed by the second message above
my device does not turn on, the LED light turn on red for about 15 seconds and then off, the only thing I can see in the screen is the battery charging symbol when I plugged it in for about 3 min and then nothing, I try another battery and is not it.
it seemed that on my computer it updated the drivers or something to read my BlackBerry torch...I already connected it to my computer before.However after it updated, my blackberry torch turned off, and now it won't turn on, and it just blips red. What do i do?
I have a torch phone and it will not allow me to turn my bluetooth on. I turn it on and it turns a light blue then when I check to see if it is working it isn't on. I recently did an update to the software and the problem seemed to occur right after this. I'm not sure the software updated correctly and I did reboot.
i just get my new blackberry torch, i insert my sim-cart and insert the battery i won't start up so i put it on the charger.but after about 10 seconds de battery with the flash sign turns into a battery with a red cross in it.and it's not possible to turn the blackberry on?
My torch has gone from lasting 16 hours to lasting less than 4 hours, almost overnight. My guess is that one or more battery-hungry apps are doing this to me. How do i find what is running in the background and cancel it?
I lost my last phone today so I dug out my old blackberry 9800 and when I went to turn it on all I see is the battery symbol with a yellow lighting bolt through and the odd red led . Its been on the charger for a few hours now but isn't doing anything need help iv gone through other forums trying to find a answer and nothing has worked so far...
I was using Facebook app on my phone when I noticed it froze on the screen which I assumed was the phone lagging since I had a couple other apps open but then I also noticed my LED light come on in a still abnormal red, a dark red and then immediately my phone shut off completely. I did a battery pull thinking I just needed to reboot it but that didn't even work since even after multiple battery pulls the reboot screen won't even show up, no loading bar, no LED either. Just nothing at all. Tried leaving it alone for a few hours, put the battery back in and still nothing. Left the battery in while charging in and still nothing.
From time to time my wi fi turns off and I can't reconnect. I go to manage connections, check the 'wi fi' box is ticked, go to 'set up wi fi network' . At this pint i get the message 'Turn on wifi to perform a scan'. I click 'Turn on wifi'. The 'connected to' window then says 'The wifi radio is off' and then 'unable to turn wifi on'.
