I am trying to create a wifi access point (hotspot) from my virgin mobile Optimus v to provide internet access.

It looks like there are several options if I root it but I'd rather not root it.

Bluetooth would be an acceptable alternative.


ClockworkMod Tether works for sharing your phone's connection with a PC, even if your carrier blocks tethering, without root.

Found a few options. The easiest seems to be : QuickSettings (free, works on an unrooted Droid, including Optimus V, reviewed here.). It did reveal the Wifi Hotspot setting so I could turn it on, but it didn't work. After more investigation this seems to be a limitation of Virgin Mobile (not allowing Tethering).

You can use PDANet to do Bluetooth tethering.
