What exactly does having a "hotspot" on my phone do ? I have an I Pad & thinking of getting an I Phone 5.
Hotspot on an iPhone means the ability or the feature that changes the iPhone into a WiFi router that permits users to connect WiFi devices to the internet through the iPhone. It can also be defined as the Internet-sharing feature on iPhone.
It lets other devices connect to the internet through your phone
it means you have a lot of wi-fi
Hotspot can emit of a wifi connection for laptops, iPods, iPads, anything that has an Internet connection but.......you can only use multiple computers and such, if you purchase the app.
The WiFi feature on a smartphone runs 30-35$ per mo. depending on the carrier.
