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 the Mobile Hotspot mode is turned 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.

Use Mobile Hotspot mode to share your Internet connection

Before you turn on Mobile Hotspot mode, check that your BlackBerry device's connection to the mobile network is turned on.
  1. On the home screen, swipe down from the top of the screen.
  2. Tap Settings > Networks and Connections > Mobile Hotspot.
  3. If you've never used Mobile Hotspot mode before, complete the instructions on the screen. Read the screens carefully as they provide important information about the Mobile Hotspot feature. Remember your Mobile Hotspot password for later.
  4. Set the Mobile Hotspot switch to On.
  5. On the device that you want to connect to the mobile hotspot, proceed as you would if you were connecting the device to any other Wi-Fi network. You need to know the name of the mobile hotspot and the password you set during the setup process.
