    wifi hotspot activation on os 7.1

    So I upgraded to os 7.1 during the week and thought I'd phone vodafone uk because I had read that you needed to phone them to activate the mobile hotspot option so I did and spoke to a representative... Turns out he had no idea what I was on about and said I must have a faulty handset. Anyone else phoned them and got it activated? Or is it not available for uk or vodafone?

    If im not mistaken I don't believe Vodafone UK has officially released a 7.1 OS for the 9900. I may be wrong on that but that's most likely why the tech had no idea. You can try using the following APN settings and see if it works:

    APN: internet
    User name APN: web
    Password APN: web

    Make sure you know what your data plan is as this could have an affect on your monthly data and in turn increase your bill.

    Hi iansantos and Welcome to

    I'm using BB Bold 9900 and I was able to use my Mobile Hotspot. We have the same provider by the way so I'm pretty sure it will work on your device too.. You may want to check the settings first..

    APN Settings Enabled: check this
    APN: http.globe.com.ph
    APN Authentication Enabled: check this
    User name APN: leave it blank
    Password APN: leave it blank


    Try to click the Mobile Hotspot again and if you are being asked for Username and Password, put globe to both of them and then OK.

    In doing this, you have to make sure that you are susbcribed on BBMAX to avoid extra charges otherwise, your credit will be eaten up as soon as you use it. Let me know if this will work on your device as its working perfectly fine with me

    Try to hard reset your device.. Pull the battery out for like 2 minutes and then place it back..
