What does "hotspotting" mean? (Part 1)

Episode 1039 (1:22:00)

Hank from Westchester, PA

Hank wants to know if hotspotting on the iPhone can turn it into a repeater. Leo says it can be a wireless hotspot, but the carrier would have to allow it. Sometimes he would have to pay extra depending on the carrier. Then in the settings he could turn on the hotspot which will turn it into a Wi-Fi access point.
