Share your phone’s internet connection with other devices such as a tablet or laptop

Connect your tablet (or laptop) to your smartphone and get internet access on the move. In this guide i will explain everything you need to know to use your phone as a portable Wi-Fi hotspot.

Unless you happen to own a tablet with 3G or 4G connectivity, your mobile internet connection will likely be through your smartphone.


A smartphone’s small screen isn’t as good as a tablet’s for browsing the web or streaming videos from YouTube or anyother sites, though. The good news is that it’s possible to use your smartphone as a portable Wi-Fi hotspot, and share its data connection with your Wi-Fi-only tablet.

This setup is called tethering or internet sharing, and many smartphones provide this feature, including iPhones,BlackBerrys, Windows Phones and, of course, Android handsets.

What does tethering mean for Android, iPhone, BlackBerry and Windows Phones?

Tethering is when you turn you smartphone into a mobile Wi-Fi hotspot and share your phones 3G/4G data connection. Once you’ve turned tethering on, any device with a wireless connection can connect to the internet via your smartphone’s connection.


‘Tethering’ means the same thing no matter what smartphone OS you are using. The only difference is how you enable it on each platform.

  1. Turning your phone into a Wi-Fi hotspot device is a very cost-friendly idea. Instead of paying for separate plans for each device, you can simply get one data plan and share the network service with all of the other devices that you use as well.
