    Phones with free mobile hotspot

    GVikings83

      Are there any phones (besides the WebOS Palm Pre Plus) that you can use as a mobile hotspot or tether for free?

       

      I don't really like my Palm Pre and I would like to get a Droid or Iphone, but my main use for my phone is a mobile hotspot. I know that you can add it as a feature to other phones for an extra $20-$30 per month, but I don't want to pay more than I already am. If that were the case, I would switch to another provider we have in town that would be much cheaper (but not as good coverage).

       

      Thanks in advance for your help!!

            My Pantech Breakout has a Mobile Hotspot app on it, but I haven't managed to connect it to the network yet.
