Use of cellphone as an access point to other mobile devices

A cellphone may be used as an access point (similar to a Wi-Fi network access point) allowing use of the Wi-Fi network by other mobile devices in its vicinity, such as tablets and other cellphones or wireless internet source in cars. In this situation it may transmit during communication with other devices. Therefore, when the cellphone is in use as an access point for other mobile devices, it is recommended to distance it from the body.
