Sharing your Internet connection using Mobile Hotspot mode

This feature lets you connect your devices to the Internet anywhere that your BlackBerry device has a mobile network

connection, but because this feature uses the mobile network, you might incur high data charges.
On some mobile networks, services such as email and BBM might not be available while Mobile Hotspot mode is on.
After you set up Mobile Hotspot mode on your BlackBerry device, connecting to the mobile hotspot with a Wi-Fi enabled

device is a lot like connecting to any regular router.
