If you have unlimited data, mobile hotspot is a feature you must sign up for.  Costs about $20/mo, I think.  If you have the new shared data plans, it's included for no additional cost.

It's $30 for the mobile hotspot when you have a 4G phone and the unlimited smartphone data plan.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

that rep is wrong. it WILL get hot, but i have ran hotspot for hours at a time with no issues. my phone did get fairly hot, but never failed, or shut down or anything.
