Sprint Hotspot

Sprint Mobile Hotspot allows you to turn your device into a Wi-Fi hotspot. The feature works best when used in conjunction with 4G data services (although 3G service can also be used). See 4G Services for more information.

Note: Connect your charger to your device if you plan to use Sprint Hotspot for an extended period.

Important! Upon activation, any current Wi-Fi connection to an access point is terminated.

  1. Enable Wi-Fi on your target device (laptop, media device, etc.).
  2. Scan for Wi-Fi networks from the device and select your hotspot from the network list.
