    I am pretty new to my Palm Pixi and experimenting with it. I currently do not have a data plan and have 3G turned off on my phone. I use it with Wifi in my office and I get an excellent signal. My question is with the mobile hot spot app. Since I get such a good Wifi signal, I'd like to use my Pixi as an AP essentially to connect to my Android tablet, which doesn't get a Wifi signal from my office. Is this even possible without a data plan?

    I'm pretty sure you can use MHS/FreeTether without data connection.
    The problem is: When you use the phone as AP the phone no longer has a connection to your existing router/ap. That means you may be connected to the pixi but the pixi no longer to the internet.
    I once connected my mac to my pre using bluetooth while the pre was connected to the wifi. This has worked.

    Yes, I did connect my tablet to the Pixi no problem, but like you say, then the Pixi is no longer connected to the Wifi, so that obviously defeats the purpose.
    I will have to see if my tablet has bluetooth and try it that way. Thanks for the advice.

    you can't do this. If you connect the pc to the pixi, the pixi needs 3G to connect to the internet.
