Re: Personal Hot Spot

I have just talked to Sprint about using my iPhone as a hot spot.
Yes, it can be done and, yes, it works well - but - it will cost you a
monthly fee I believe.
Your carrier has to authorize the iPhone as a hot spot in order to use the
phones data plan.

Subject: Personal Hot Spot


In August, we will be staying at a cabin in Maine. I expect
wireless connectivity to be suspect (The last time I "borrowed"
the signal from a kids camp across a neck in the lake).

My iPhone has a thing called a Hot Spot function, and AT & T has
decent receptivity at the lake.

I have never tried the iPhone Hot Spot or tried to connect to a
so-called personal hot spot with JAWS and my Windows (7 or 8.1)

Should I even bother? Has anyone on the list ever got the
connection to work with JAWS?

The only sighted assistance I'll have are Luddites. So, I'll
either have to do it myself or perch on the ledge again and hope
to connect to the camp - assuming they haven't secured the signal.
