Setup BlackBerry Mobile Hotspot in BlackBerry 9360 Apollo

At present, when you buy a new BlackBerry Curve 9360 Apollo the device is powered by BlackBerry OS 7.0 by default. If you want this handset capable to run as a mobile hotspot, you need to upgrade it to BlackBerry OS 7.1. See my post on how to upgrade Curve 9360 to OS 7.1

Once the device is upgraded to OS 7.1 you are ready to make it as a mobile hotspot for up to 5 devices connected to it at the same time. This post guides you how to set up mobile hotspot in BlackBerry Curve 9360 Apollo running leaked OS

1. From the home screen, navigate to the top of the screen using trackpad and hit the trackpad to show the menu.

2. The Manage Connections menu will appear in the screen. Select the Mobile Hotspot to activate it.

3. When you select the Mobile Hotspot, you will be asked to enter your mobile network provider APN (Access Point Name), its username and password. Contact your provider to get the APN. Then click OK to finish the setup.

NOTE that when you are using APN-enabled connection, you may be charged an additional cost by your mobile network provider. Contact them to ask about it before using it.

You can now try to connect other wireless-equipped devices to the WiFi access point transmitted by the BlackBerry device.
