Default Question! Answer soon please.

Is there anyway to bounce the wifi from your phone to other devices. Like not tether over 3g but using the connected wifi on your phone and bounce it from your phone to like my Xbox. Because I can pick it up with my phone but not with my Xbox. Because its stronger on my phone. So I wondering if that was possible.

You mean use your phone as a WiFi repeater or booster? Long story short...no.

You can buy a WiFi repeater/range extender. That should achieve what you require. I've had no experience of these, but apparently they work best if they're the same make as the WiFi access point, e.g. Linksys AP and Linksys repeater.
