I have a Boost LG Venice
The phone is fine. I like it more-or-less. Well the battery life sucks, but that's not my point.
My point is that I want to turn my device into a hotspot. I did some reading on it (on another forum) and it was suggested that I download PdaNet+, which I did. The instructions then proceeded to give me a series of steps to achieve the desired outcome, which I followed. But my phone is still NOT a hotspot.
In retrospect, I'm glad I didn't do it, because I came across this thread here:
Now to be clear, I don't want my phone to become susceptible to some nasty android preying virus, but I do want the hotspot feature. My question is can I still gain hotspot status without opening myself up to the risk of catching a virus? After considering the possible outcomes, I prefer security. But if its possible, I do wanna do it.
Can someone help me?
