How to Use Personal Hotspot on HTC One

There’s nothing more helpful than having mobile internet access when you need it, especially if the internet connection you rely on for emailing and surfing isn’t working. Enabling personal hotspot on HTC One is as simple as pressing a few buttons.

It’s worth noting that while every HTC mobile has the hotspot functionality, whether it’s enabled or not depends on the service plan you decide on when you buy the device. For example, mobile hotspot functionality is available as an add-on to devices shipped to T-Mobile users, but AT&T users should have chosen a plan that already includes this functionality.

If you want to use the feature but don’t have a plan with your carrier that allows you to do so, you can add hotspot functionality at any time via your carrier’s website or support line. Here’s how to use personal hotspot on HTC One.

From the Home Screen or any app you open, swipe down from notification bar at the top of the screen

HTC One users can choose which settings they want to enable when using the personal hotspot feature on HTC One from the Mobile network sharing menu. Options include the ability to share HTC One’s mobile internet connection using a wireless Bluetooth connection, over a Wi-Fi connection, or using a physical connection via the micro USB port on the bottom of the device.
