Turn Your Nokia Phone Into a Wifi Hotspot

Turn Your Nokia Phone Into a Wifi HotspotWhat happens if your Broadband gets down suddenly on a day when having access to the internet is of most important?

One of our TT readers experienced the same problem and his problem is not rectified even after repeated complaints for about 4 days! So we don’t want our TT readers to face such problems again.

So we decided to review a wonderful mobile app called Joikuspot which will turn your Nokia Mobile Phone into WI-FI Hotspot sounds interesting?

Joikuspot is a Mobile app that turns your Wi-Fi enabled 3G phone into a WI-FI Hotspot, so that you can connect your Laptop, IPad and other WI-FI devices to have access to the internet using your 3G connection. (Even Edge connection makes it for Browsing).

This is a free WI-FI tethering software for mobile phones with Symbian S60 (Nokia) Phones, while only premium is available for N900 and Windows Mobile editions.

The software is available in both light and premium versions.

1)Joikuspot Premium: Helps one to connect your laptop or iPad to internet using Wi-Fi tethering with your mobile phone. Joikuspot Premium comes with password connection securing, encryption, and full internet and email protocol support.

2)Joikuspot Light: Joikuspot Light is a limited edition of Joikuspot, and operates your phone as an open Wi-Fi Hotspot. This can be used just for browsing the internet.

You can get a limited free version (Light) from here.

All you need to do is download, install and Restart the phone, that’s it Joikuspot will do everything done right for you easily. After you open the app it asks for the Internet connection to be used for Hotspot, select your connection and it will start the Hotspot in seconds. You can directly connect the Laptop, IPad and have access to the internet *.

*Take care of your 3G/Edge data rates /plans. Additional data charges may apply in case if you are not on an unlimited plan.

The interface of the app is very clear and has just the required number of settings as you see in the screenshots.

The options Menu has very few options to choose from select a hotspot, stop hotspot, about, exit which are required.

GOOD:

1) The app is small in size and installation goes smoothly, just a restart required after installation.

2) Easy User Interface and setup.

3) Free Limited Light edition

BAD:

1) Free version does not support even encryption feature i.e. No security.

2) Light version is not available for N900, Windows Mobile platforms.

3) To add security and other email protocols one should  switch to premium version by purchasing the software.

So, whenever your Broadband goes down, just run this little app and turn your 3G WI-FI mobile into a Hotspot and have access to the internet on your laptop, IPad.

    I tried it on my Nokia E71 Mobile,
    I was unable to connect via my samsung android tablet or even with samsug galaxy mobile,
    it seems it has some problems with Android OS.

    I’m very upset, as I can connect from my PC/Laptop via Nokia suite thru USB Cable or Bluetooth.

  • Jan5800vod September 1, 2012 3:58 pm

    Woops looks like my Google Nexus 7 tablet does not “see” ad hoc networks, my iPad works OK with it although just the Google.com page load used a lot of data both ways!

  • Jan5800vod September 1, 2012 3:35 pm

    Version 2.5 used to work then stopped maybe after 5800 phone software upgrade. Didn’t have a data plan for years so I did not try it but Now I do. Just updated to version 3.2 and it runs but no WiFi signal turns on.

    • Honza Albrecht July 3, 2013 1:29 pm

      Because JoikuSpot create AdHoc net. But your (all) Saumsung device looking for AP net.
      You should install on Samsung any app witch support AdHoc net

  • IpRameshKumar October 25, 2010 5:50 pm

    If You installed in your phone, itll act as a server. like you accessing others wifi(like a server, through youll b accessing internet), others can use your phone as a server(HOTSPOT).

  • charanteja October 2, 2010 12:37 am

  • kanna September 24, 2010 4:14 pm

    @Dan having zero packs has nothing to do with. thats the amount of data ur phone has transferred in that connection.

    there might be a problem with ur connection or apn settings.
    please check that to rectify your problem.

  • Dan September 24, 2010 8:56 am

    Greeting,

    I am trying to use the nokia E73. I have connection with excellent signal but I am not able to open any websites. What am I doing wrong? Does haveing zero packets have anything to do with it and if so how do I fix that? look forward to your reply.

    som :
    why do we need a separate application?you could just use the bluetooth connection to do the same with the added benefit(nobody else will be able to use it).is there really a need for a separate application?i am not convinced

    This application becomes really handy when the in buliding coverage is low. You can keep the phone near the window or the place where you get good signal and browse the net from your laptop. Also I was able to get the wifi signal up to 20 mts using my Nokia E72. When I used the same phone with bluetooth I was able to get the signal only till 5 mts.. Also in bluetooth only one can use the internet here you can share the internet with others…

  • Karthik Kumar V G September 21, 2010 10:14 pm

    What must be the phone requirement. Will it work for Nokia E72

  • AKS September 21, 2010 3:59 pm

    hey… I m using premium since 1 yr on my E63 and its a very nice app. My premium version is a cracked one with all features.

  • VKP September 21, 2010 2:30 pm

  • aks September 21, 2010 11:42 am

    few days back me n ma bro talking abt this type of application… now i got it.. thanks to TT…
    keep updating…

  • lee September 21, 2010 9:42 am

    Premium @ wat cost?

  • Ganesh Srinivasan September 21, 2010 7:13 am

    I have used the light version [without security] on my Nokia E63 with BSNL 3G, it worked great, speed was good [much better than tethering through BlueTooth and Nokia PC suite – here the phone works as a modem only and hence the speed is very much limited]

    There were few considerations for me not to continue / go for premium edition – I didn’t want to do too many things with E63 as phone memory is limited

    Better choice would be dedicated routers – portable WiFi routers / MiFi routers – priced around Rs 4,000 + onwards. Most of these routers come with plugging your existing USB data card and some of them [priced high] come with direct plugging of SIM card. One of my ex colleagues sells these routers HQ in Bangalore

    I am thinking of buying one of these routers, when iPad gets launched in India. I can go in for WiFi version of iPad instead of WiFi + 3G version

    My idea is to have one connection for phone calls and SMS and one subscription for data. One phone, one data subscription and more WiFi enabled devices is my mantra

    This approach in fact can save tremendous costs for Corporates

  • lee September 21, 2010 1:34 am

    @Amit.g
    ya we can, but really slow. Using cable, wifi speeds up. . .

  • Rakes kumar September 21, 2010 12:52 am

    I have been using the Free Version on my Nokia 5800.Its very good and convenient. thought no 3G but i use it on AirTel 2G in Kolkata, the speed is slow but it works.would be very good once 3G comes.

  • Amit.g September 21, 2010 12:03 am

    wow tats really cool but we can use internet through bluetooth also rite???

    • Jithendra December 5, 2013 12:15 pm

      Yup, If you are aware of VPN then surely u can no need of any middleware softwares.
