no, only if you pay the $20 & phone will be a hotspot.
Can you please advise me what type of device you have? From there I will be able to advise you if this action is possible and provide more details? Thank you.
The OP has a wifi only android tablet (ASUS EEE pad Transformer) with USB support. They also have a Verizon USB modem stick with an existing 3G or 4G broadband plan. They want to plug in the USB stick into the tablet and connect to the Internet through the USB stick with the tablets.
I was able to gather all that information from their post. Personally I think it is possible, but the only snag I can see is the VZ Access Manager.
Thank you for your inquiry and thanks everyone for your suggestions. You will not be able to use a USB modem with a tablet. Ann, is correct you would need VZ Access Manager to use a USB modem. Here is a link to the system requirements for VZ Access Manager. If you are eligible for upgrade you can get a wireless hotspot device and use that wirelessly with your tablet.
