    If I am allowed to tether/use my mobile as a wifi hotspot with my network
    will I be able to do so when using Android JellyBean 4.3 and KitKat 4.4?

    Hi adamchrissy, and welcome to Android Forums :)

    In general, as long as the carrier permits you to tether, your device *should* allow you to. That's not always the case, though...

    What carrier and device(s) do you use? That will help us be able to tell you for sure. :thumbup:

    Thanks for the reply
    I am with three (UK) and the contract includes unlimited data and the ability to tether. The phone I am thinking of buying is a Asus Zenfone 5 A501CG that comes with Android 4.3 (Jelly Bean) but can be updated to Android 4.4.2 Kitkat.

    This question is well timed!

    I'm also on 3 and my BT broadband disconnected today - a day early - as part of my change of provider. No broadband? No problem. I tethered to my Nexus 4 (KitKat 4.4.4) using its built-in tethering facility to do my ritual morning scan of the forums and it all works fine as you can see :)
