I currently have a Nokia E5 and wanted to find out if there is any good app to make my phone into a portable wifi hotspot?
i have downloaded joikuspot (the lite version) but it seems its not that perfect as my Galaxy Tab can't seem to find my phone. (after checking the settings, visibility, etc.)
is there any other similar app than joikuspot? or am i better off with a Nokia phone that can act on its own as a wifi hotspot?
i need help please...

My Galaxy Tab is an unrooted one and the OS in an upgraded 2.3 Gingerbread now. so, am i correct in saying:
1. get an iPad instead of a Galaxy Tab?
2. just get another phone (a Nokia or Android) that will act as a wifi hotspot and not "depend" too much on an app?
3. no point in downloading Joikuspot Premium?
what do you think guys? any further advice please.
The reason why i'm trying to avoid purchasing a portable wifi (or mifi as some operators might call it) is because it cost money.
If a phone has an app or is capable ON ITS OWN being a portable wifi hostpsot then why not.
is there any way i can change settings in my Nokia E5 to make it look like as NOT an adhoc network? or perhaps changing the settings on my Galaxy Tab?
or what do you think is the best solution or options do i have right now?
I thought the E6 can act "on its own" as a wifi hotspot without the use of an app. is this true?
and if its the case will it be as an ad-hoc or will my Gtab "see" it as an adhoc?
please explain and advice further.
Just last question although i'm not sure if you guys would be able to answer this.
I'm just curious....why does iOS devices find it so easy to connect to an adhoc network? i thought theirs is a "close" network unlike Android or Symbian.
So, would you think future Symbian and Android OS-eses would allow adhoc connections?
and do you think one day we will be experiencing cross-platform stuff i.e. iOS features "copied" or based from Android and Symbian and vice versa. (like what people are saying about iOS5).
I also noticed that after downloading the Joikuspot Premium edition i noticed that iPod Touch "disconnects" from the (adhoc) network for some mysterious reason and "switches" to my home wifi network if aim at home. this happened al the time when i put my idevice on standby.
Is this phenomenom to blame the app? or my Nokia phone? or my iPod Touch?
any explanation for this?
can you tell me more abt what i have to install in my rooted android tablet to let it see an ad-hoc wifi hotspot like Joiku? thanks in advance i have a nokia E71.
hello sir,i too have an E5-00. i have downloaded and reinstalled joiku lite many times but never i have been aable to start it...evry time i try it it asks for an acess point and after selection its shows "stopped"
what should i do?
it works nicely on one pof my friend's fone of same model.
Its a Symbian/Android limitation. Unrooted Androids arent able to connect to ad hoc networks like Joikuspot makes. Androids only connect to infrastructure networks similar to the ones they create. The only way to make an Android connect to an adhoc network is to root it and push some codes into it. iPads can connect to ad hoc networks though
