Use your smartphone to connect other devices to the internet

Depending on your smartphone model, you may be able to use it to:


  • Create an internet connection from a desktop or laptop computer (often called tethering), and
  • Set up a Wi-Fi hotspot so that you can share your phone’s internet connection with other devices via Wi-Fi

Use our step by step guides to find out how to do this for your phone. Select your device from the home page, then go to the Data and Wireless tab for step by step guidelines.
