Did my Defy suggestions work for your Nexus?

Check out this link to activate the hotspot...


With the hotspot enabled and password defined....  Have your Nexus scan for the new wifi.



  • use a good password to ensure that it's not compromised.  You don't want to be known as offering free wifi to the world
  • wifi drains the battery quickly on smart phones.   You might find yourself needing to charge your phone more often.
  • pay attention to your data consumption on your mobile plan, especially if you are paying roaming charges

We do not have a password for the Defy.  Have searched the phone and now will need to contact Telus directly for assistance.

Hmm... the phone itself will not have a password. However the wifi ssid will to ensure you are not providing free wifi to unwanted guests.

The password in step 8 is important.
