[Q] Can I use a stock blaze to tether?
I have a Blaze on T-mobile's value plan with 2gb data. I am currently running stock 2.3.6 gingerbread and have an icon blinking that there is an OTA update to ICS waiting for me to install. I've postponed that for the moment until I find the answer to my tethering question.
I would rarely use it, but on trips I would like to be able to use my blaze as a hotspot for a tablet/laptop. Im a noob, and afraid to go down the rooting path. With staying stock 2.3.6, would I be able to just use the built in hotspot app to give access to a tablet/laptop? If not, would foxfi or another program work?
Also, if I were to go ahead and install the ICS update would that affect things? If I can use the built in hotspot app or foxfi only in 2.3.6 and ICS update would not allow these options then I'd prefer to stay where I am on 2.3.6. If I need to stay on gingerbread, how can I get this annoying icon telling me to update to go away?
Thanks so much for your help guys
