Tethering / Personal Hotspot

No not kinky games but an essential item on a smartphone.....when can we expect these to be provided?   I know about the FCC issue but surely a few palms can be greased to get it through them?

This is the internet and a focussd spot for feedback directly from Nokia and the community.  As we all know the interent is full of trolls... like you feeding the community with dross and sub intellect flotsam

Re: Tethering / Personal Hotspot

Nokia is not able to provide information about the future developments of the Windows Phone OS. You could make your recommendation directly to Microsoft via this site:

Windows Phones have it. HTC Raider have it. Nokia doesn't. So wake up. You're losing sales and customers like me.

Dear Sir,

As you might know Internet Sharing (tethering) is an integral part of Windows Phone 7.5 (Mango). It is however upto device manufacturers -aka Nokia - to make it available to customers.And it is upto providers to support is or not. So the question should not - as you suggest - be directed to Microsoft but directly to Nokia, as Nokia obviously have chosen not to enable Internet Sharing on the Lumia 800.

Thanks in advance.

Henk.

 

You are absolutely correct. This question should not at all be directed to Microsoft. If it were an MS issue, then we'd be begging for tethering on ALL WP7 devices.

 

Tethering update better come out soon, or Nokia will be squandering their efforts.

This might of course be a battery issue. Internet Sharing will no doubt require much of the already not so convincing capacity of the Lumia 800's battery (although mine runs for 2 days (3G off, WiFi, Bluetooth, location etc on)).
