Can I use the data on my phone for a tablet when travelling?

Hi Habib,

Depending on your phone, if it supports a feature called "portable hotspot" then yes. You are able to turn your phone into a portable hotspot that shoots out a wireless network that you would then connect to with your tablet. If you tell us your phone model, we can give you better instructions to turn this feature on and configure it.

The larger the tablet (or PC), the larger the hit on your mobile data budget will be. Typical mobile data plans are only 1/200's as powerful as landline for the amount you will spend.
