Personal Hotspot with just WiFi??


So my university has a specific type of wireless connection that requires extra security and login info. I can connect with my phone, but most gaming systems cannot connect to the university wifi.

I have not purchased a package or anything for personal hotspot. However, when I turned it on, it said it will go through wifi or bluetooth. I am currently connected to the wifi on my phone.

If I turn on personal hotspot, will it be free? Since I'm not using the phone's data, but the university wifi, and using my phone as a middle step to connect gaming systems to the university wifi.

No.  It will not work that way.

If you use the Personal Hotspot feature on the phone, you will be using your cellular data.

The phone will not function as a "pass-through".
