Can I download the program for HotSpot to my BB


I don't have hotspot on the phone. Can my phone be 'upgraded' to have this? Can I download the program from anywhere? Thanks again

Only BB with OS 7.1 have hotspot capability

What BB do you have if it is not one of the 10 series you will need to have OS version 7.1 I believe. As I don't think it was added till then

That was her last question on that post, you cannot update your BB 9360 to OS 7.x, but you can Upgrade to newer BB, or just install BB Desktop manager and plug USB cable to your phone to configure your phone as HOTSPOT using link on first post http://community.koodomobile.com/koodo/topics/can_i_use_my_9360_blackberry_curve_as_a_hot_spot

a usb tether isn't a 'hotspot', but yeah, you can tether via desktop manager on pre 7.1 devices.

Her phone, a 9360 (not a 9630), is capable of Hotspot as OS 7.1 is available (I have two of these on my desk). She needs to upgrade it from the Stock Koodo 7.0 OS to to 7.1. Regardless, my comment was a polite reminder not to post 2 topics that are the same question, as it splits the answers and causes duplicate effort (as we just witness)
