I was grandfathered into a plan with unlimited data back when it was available. I'm looking to get the iPhone 4s and wondering if I'll have to pay an additional fee to enable mobile hot-spotting, or if it'll be free since I am contracted with unlimited data?
If I do have to pay, is it a one-time fee or monthly? And how much?
Thanks for your help!
you must pay for mobile hotspot
it starts @ $20 for 2gb iirc
now if you get a 4g phone there was a promotion for a $30 unlimited hotspot that may still be active
But the question is, since I already have unlimited data, what would I be paying for?
the abilty to use the hotspot and connect other devices
the unlimited data is for the data the phone uses only
you cannot connect other devices to that data stream without paying
Also note that eventhough they say "unlimited", they can throttle 3G devices that use too much.
Throttle meaning they decrease speeds?
vzw says the top 5% of data users may be throttled
