That’s great!  The Personal/Mobile Hotspot feature is included in the More Everything Plan at no additional charge.  And yes, the data usage from the hotspot will deduct from your plan allowance.  Please let me know should you have any further questions or concerns.

I know we can solve this mystery. Most of the recent plans, the hotspot pulls from your plan data, just like using data directly on the phone itself. On some of the older plans though, there may be a data limit for the hotspot feature. Do you know which plan you are on?

That’s a great question.  It’s important to be able to manage your data usage.

You can easily monitor your data usage from your phone by dialing #DATA or via your My Verizon Mobile application.  Check out these tools for monitoring your data usage here too: http://vz.to/1xccfxq.

Depending on your phone, you can view Data usage from wifi, and cellular, and set the dates to correspond to your billing cycle.  This way you know exactly where you stand, and how much data you are using.

Go to settings, then Data Usage, and check out the options for Wifi, cellular, and alerts you can set.
