    Hi,
    The Tethering and portable Hotspot options are should be available with the phone that are running android version 2.2 or higher. These option will be available in the Settings option that can be selected from the application drawer and then select the option "Settings" in settings under "Wireless & networks" you will be able to find an option by name "Tethering and Portable Hotspot" by selecting that option you can enable either USB tethering or WiFi hotspot to share the internet connection. If you are using a phone with Android OS v4 the option will be present in the menu under "More" which will be present under the "Wireless & Networks" option. If that is not helping then you can use this applicaiton for USB tethering.

    hi,
    Which Xperia model does your brother have?
    The tethering and hotspot options are available under SETTINGS-->WIRELESS & NETWORK-->TEETHERING & HOTSPOT.
    This options are available to xperia users only if they have upgraded their android software to IceCreamSandwich ( Android 4.0 ).If you have a old model like xperia X10 or xperia X8 , W8 , then they have officially ended the software update process at android 2.3 and will not upgrade to higher versions . If you are too eager to have these options you can surely root your phone and install custom roms in which you will find all these settings.

    Regards,
    OhmnioX

    Hello Guest,
    Tethering option is available in all handsets equipped with Android and having Wi-fi, 3G features. You can try to loacte it again. Just point to Menu>Settings>Wireless and Networks. Scroll down and you get the option of "Tethering and Portable wi-fi hotspot", just under Bluetooth Settings. That's it. Just select it and you can enable it, and you should have a working internet connection/wi-fi connection to use it in other device. It is not possible to delete this option from an Android Handset. I am so sure that you did not find it at the right place. Thank You, and visit again! :-)
