    Hi,
    Not sure if this is possible? I'm going away in a couple of weeks, and the hotel charges per device for wifi. I'd like to use my jailbroken iPhone 5 as a hotspot using the hotels wifi. Am I right in thinking that hotspots only work with cellular data?
    Thanks

    The hotspot uses the wifi data if it's available otherwise it uses you cellular data

    The wifi hotspot will use your cellular data.

    From what I have tried, you can only hotspot from cellular, not from wifi

    Thanks for the replies. PDANet on Cydia did the trick. It can broadcast wifi or cellular data too.
