Help, How-To & Tips
Here we walk though setting up the Mobile Hotspot on the leaked 7.1 OS for Bold 9900. Mobile Hotspot allows you to share your BlackBerry data plan with other WiFi only devices like the BlackBerry PlayBook or Apple iPod Touch. Some key points to be aware of:
I can confirm that when using the Mobile Hotspot with your BlackBerry PlayBook, App World does work on the PlayBook. This is great news because under Bridge or Tethering App World was not available.

Guys, you article quotes that you need tethering activated.
I have mine activated and this works great, but Hotspot still gets a network error when trying to setup.
I believe my network might still have to enable something to allow this to work.

Can we use the hotspot to connect it to the ps3?
Nov 27, 2011 at 5:21 pm
Mine works fine without a tethering plan. and yes ps3 will work i average 10mbps on att H+

Very nice! Dear Leak Gods, no OS 7.1 love for the 9810?? I'm your humble servant, do you want me to sacrifice someone?

I have an annoying dog...shall we offer him up to the Blackberry Gods?

sorry if this is a dumb question but if there is already wifi available what is the point?
Nov 28, 2011 at 4:13 am
when your phone is your "wifi router" it means you are able to take your "mobile hotspot" everywhere you go, this way you do not have to rely on somebody elses or your own home wifi signal
hope that helps you understand a bit better
oh, and it is especially great for playbook owners because now we can actually utilize H+ and for those who do not have a landline, but still need to get things like ps3's online and the like...
as well, i do not have a landline intenet connection with wifi, so i cannot access app world on my playbook until my 9810 gets 7.1 with mobile hotspot
trust me, it is a big deal, lol
in the time of your life, live so that in that good time, there should be no ugliness or death for yourself or for any life that your life touches, seek goodness everywhere

i have been posting this frustration for months, no access to app world via bridge or tether, it sucks
and it still sucks because i do not have a bold?
kind of a joke, although i realize it is not "official" - it is so damn late. i don't understand
i originally posted this nonsense a long time ago when my buddy gleefully connected my playbook to his HTC ANDROID phone, just so he could laugh at app world at that time, using his several month old "mobile hotspot" android os feature
i heart blackberry and everything, but this inability to access app world via anything except mobile hotspot (which i still DO NOT HAVE) or wifi access points is SO frustrating it is not even funny at all, seriously
this is the one and only thing that really really pisses me off
- i am done ranting about this wackness because the fact is, i don't even have proper spell check because my playbook lacks this (rhyme, lol)
anyways, the only redemption i can see is 7.1 and 2.0. oh, one other thing is good, i still actually convinced that android user friend and his wifey to get playbooks, even after all my frustration and bruised ego due to the lack of a mobile hotspot feature that was originally to be included in A 9800 UPDATE, roflmao
oh, and i also have them both sold on bbx phones too, they'll each be getting one when they're available

All yiou have to do is be patient and wait to upgrade.
Nov 28, 2011 at 4:10 am
ya, thanks for the advice bronanza, lol, on patience
but in case my post was not clear enough, apparently it wasn't because i have been "patiently" waiting since my 9800, so as a blackberry enthusiast, i am pretty sure i have the patience thing handled man
anyways, peace, thanks for reading my post, lol

is data traffic covered with my BIS or you have to pay extra
Nov 28, 2011 at 12:48 pm
It all depends on your carrier. I'm on Rogers and all data traffic (BES, BIS, IM, BBM, PIN, tethering, whatever) is covered under my $30 - 6GB data plan.
If you're carrier, like AT&T, requires a tethering plan with a separate data bucket - than it would be under the tethering bucket.

Not able to set up hotspot as message I receive says there's a temprary network problem and to try later. Not sure what the issue is as others have said they have set it up on Tmo. Entered APN as epc.tmobile.com, no plan restrictions at all, wifi is on. Just not sure what it is. Will continue to try to get it set up.

Is this really faster than bluetooth DUN?
Dec 5, 2011 at 12:46 am

Jan 27, 2012 at 6:20 pm
I have a question, I have unlimited BIS (FB,Twitter,WhatsApp,Email etc) with my Phone Company and 200 MB for Browser or 3G Usage, will I be able to use it unlimited with BIS or does this take up MB's from my Data Plan I'm so confused please help 'cause I wanna buy a 9360 and was wondering if it was worth it

Hey... Quick question I recently upgrade my bold 9900 with o's 7.1 and tried mobile hotshot, got it working on the first day but by the next the next day the option to select it in manage connections was gone! Has this happen to anyone else out there? How can I resolve it?
Aug 12, 2012 at 6:45 am
From Dave. This is the Bulldog in PI, I spent last 2 weeks trying to solve why BB OS 7.1 and the "mobile hotspot" function would not WORK on my 9900. Want to add this input to specify what I have found: I use Globe's BBMAX599 service as a Pre-Paid customer. My service was current and no matter what I did...the log-on screen in mobile hotspot always ask for a "user name" and Password and it said to contact my service provider rather than connecting. I called Globe in Manila and they specified that I had to be a "post-paid customer" to get the mobile hotspot service on BBMAX. First thing is that is TOTALLY WRONG!!! I did not have my SIM card refreshed or anything as well(anyway...because the GLOBE Techs have no clue what refreshing a SIM Card was..that is). NOW, I have my "mobile hotspot" working perfectly GREAT, because what I found was... that if your use your original Blackberry email address from Globe/Blackberry that you got from the first time your logged in using your BBMAX (don't use your current Blackberry ID and Password) it will work perfectly fine and connect.
Aug 18, 2012 at 7:56 am
Well, I was doing great but today my BBMAX expired and now after refreshing my account and even though I'm still using the same stuff to log-on its telling the "Activation Required stuff", Oh well, was doing good...this is the latest update. I'm going to wait till the Blackberry server updates and maybe I'll be back, Will Advise, Bulldog
