Questions and Answers

How do I setup my hotspot? They said I need to setup an account?

Motorola Atrix hotspot -- I need an account.

Yes, mobile hotspots are not free and require that you sign up for additional plans with your carrier. The account your phone is referring to is your account with your mobile provider; call your mobile provider to make sure that you are paying the additional fees required to use the mobile hotspot feature. Once they confirm that you are paying for it and set it up for you, you'll be able to use your hotspot.
