    WiFi For Kindle Fire

    I bought the newest KindleFire tablet for my daughter. I was wondering how to get wifi for the tablet whenever she is visiting her grandmother that does not have internet service. We currently have straighttalk phones. Is there a way I can enable her kindle to use her straighttalk phone as a hotspot?

    The question is, will your phone provide a hot spot, if yes then you can connect the kindle to it, some phones do this, some don't, some will work with a app to provide hot spot,

    Go in to wifi settings on the phone and see if there is a function that says hot spot. If so turn it on.

    And connect the kindle, make sure to turn if off again as it drains the battery,

    Some phone netcworks are funny about tethering and either restrict the data or just all out ban it others don't seem to care
