    Anyone tethered their Kindle Fire?

    A friend, who is in Portugal, has just got a Kindle Fire and tried tethering it to his iPhone without success. I'm going out there tonight and I'll have a look but I wondered if any of you had tried.

    I tried tethering a normal kindle to a Galaxy SII and it won't work either - I'm not sure it supports the method.

    When away from home I often use my phone as a hotspot and connect the Kindle to that. I've never tried to tether a kindle.

    This method works with a Nexus 7 - The Kindle Fire runs android doesn't it? So should in theory work (i was using Samsung S3 as hotspot)

    Seems there are ways but you have to root the phone and download a fix. I might try it on my phone but I'm unwilling to do it on someone else's.

    I think the easiest way is to use a mobile wifi hotspot app.
    You can avoid tethering charges with some of them. It would probably hurt your data allowance though

    It doesn't appear to work. Or not with My Galaxy Ace anyway. I tried a couple of Kindles and they would see it ok but wouldn't connect.
