Galaxy Ace 2 tethering

Hi guys. My mother in law is currently in hospital and is in serious need of entertainment, is it easy enough to wifi tether from the Ace 2, I haven had a look and am guessing its probably self explanatory but thought I would have a little look before I visit tonight Smiley Happy

 

many thanks

Robbie

Yes, it's all in the settings, straightforward.

I don't know if hospitals have this, I haven't read anything, maybe they do.

Stylee mentions "wifi tether" in the first post so I assume they have checked out the availability, but I agree, if you are using the contract data plan it will get consumed very quickly.

@ Stylee - what are you wanting to tether to?

There's no nationwide service for NHS hospitals - it's up to the individual hospital or local trust to decide if and how to handle it.   A number of hospitals do have wifi but it's not free - you have to pay for access, the same way you now have to pay to watch TV.

Re: Galaxy Ace 2 tethering

None of the hospitals in the Greater Manchester area have free wifi. It would be such a benefit for in-patients and is something the government should look at providing.
