Interesting thing about the Sprint Hotspot.


Interesting thing about the Sprint Hotspot.

Today, i found out that the Sprint Hotspot in the settings menu has another puprose besides tethering.  You can use it to create a local network (WIFI hotspot without internet) between multiple computers without internet.  Imagine you are in the middle of nowhere and you need to transfer files between two laptops and you have no internet or USB drive (but happen to have your smartphone).  You could create a local hotspot and then transfer the files.  It behaves similarly to WiFi Direct. This isn't overly useful, but is an interesting feature.
