cell phone hot spot

No content

Best Buy customers often prefer the following products when searching for cell phone hot spot.

If you're like most people, you probably have a smartphone. And if you're like most people with smartphones, you probably go online using that phone. That means you have a data plan—and it also means that when you're out and about and need to get online, you may not have an Internet connection available to you. If you're in a public place—like an airport or a university campus—you may be able to use the Wi-Fi available there. What do you do? The answer is to use your smartphone as a hot spot. Here are some of our favorite phones with that capability.
